Another Day in the Life

FYI:  I was posting this yesterday when a storm blew through and I lost internet.  Pretend it’s yesterday!

We took a bit of lazy day today.  It had rained overnight and we didn’t feel much like crawling around on the still-goopy ground.  We took advantage of the lingering moisture to have a safe fire day, burning the cedars we had cut down a few weeks ago to make room for fruit trees.  (I hate cedars and all of their look-alike relatives!!)

Yesterday, however, I managed to get the carrots, lettuce, and spinach sown.  We have about six of those new raised beds in the main garden completely full now.  You can almost see the onion transplants and mini-blind slat labels sticking up out of the dirt below.  I can’t wait to see some green growth!

The wintersown plants are enjoying being in the open after having their lids cut off earlier in the week.

A few of the wintersown Alpine strawberries were planted out today in the front yard wheel beds.  I’m going to make it a nibbly sort of place for the kids.  When they’re out playing, they’ll have green onions, berries, cherry tomatoes, and that sort of thing to munch on without having to go into the main garden.

The poor front walk is a mess and will continue to be until everything is planted out.  The flats pictured here are all tomatoes, except for the last couple flats which are herbs and true potato seedlings.

      I already do, Paula! It’s not perfect but, boy, it’s a 1000% better than what we had to start in OK. Love it!

    Wow, you have sure been busy since last I checked in with you. You are going to have a wonderful garden this year!

      It’s that time of the year for both of us, huh? We can always rest in winter!
