Garden Week 1
All of the seedlings I planted before I left for spring break a few weeks ago died while I was on vacation. I think the cat had her way with them. So, I replanted them last week, finally. They are just starting to grow. The potatoes I planted in my large garbage can are doing beautifully – the can is already halfway full of dirt and I have about 10 potato plants growing steadily upward. I’m excited to see what the potato harvest will end up being.
I finally got my backyard tilled. I’m kind of glad that I didn’t have it done before now, because we had a pretty harsh cold snap the last couple of days, and if I’d have been on the schedule I had in my mind, I could have lost everything and had to start over.
I’ve also purchased four containers for lettuce. I want to rotate the lettuce growth – a container a week – so that I can harvest the lettuce on a rotating basis.
The yard is tilled. So far, I have planted 4 rows of corn, 2 rows of peas, 2 rows of green beans, a row of carrots, and a row of radishes. The rest will have to wait for the seedlings to be ready to be transplanted.
I’m so grateful for your visit, today.
