Underground Potential

I am so glad I joined that CSA this year. Not only do I get to look forward to all those yummy fresh organic veggies but they really want us to be involved in the progress.

"Happy May Day!!

Well, we would like to tell you all that the peas are up and brocolli and cabbage are coming along. However, I can't! The weather has been so darn cold and cloudy that soil temperatures are still really low and I have nothing in the ground as of yet. But that being said we erected a greenhouse in early April and all of the plants that were spread around the house to catch some sun and stay warm are now soaking up the little sun we get everyday in the greenhouse. We have started tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, brocolli, cabbage, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, lettuce, spinach, onions, leeks, summer savory and cucumbers. Thay all are doing well despite the weather outside.

If we get any sun at all this week, we will have brocolli, cabbage, onions (red and yellow), spinach and lettuce and other greens in the ground. By next weekend we will be starting basil and all of the squashes in the greenhouse.

On Saturday I did get the fertilizer spread on the early season garden and the afternoon rain soaked it all into the soil. I also got the rototiller into the garden for a trial run before the rain came.

Stop by if you are in the neighborhood to see what we are up to. We welcome your visits. But be careful we might put you to work in the garden.

Pray for sun (a little rain) and some warmer temps so we can get things off the ground, oops, I mean in the ground."
