And we're off!
Yes! Seeds are sprouting and seedlings are rooting and almost ALL of the transplants have been transplanted! Yippee!
This week the tomato seedlings FINALLY made it into the ground and today eggplants, sweet peppers, and hot peppers made it in. (Not counting the ones that are going to be tended in the back garden at home - always something). That leaves only the sweet potato slips and the late coles to get in (and of course all the back garden transplanting left to do but hey - progress is progress!)
I have also been busily 'manicuring' the farm - mowing and dethistling and mowing and dethistling. I am finding that the work is getting easier as the season progresses - I just love the natural fitness that farming provides (not to mention the naturally good food!).
The current harvest includes strawberries, lettuces, spinach, snap peas, rhubarb, and sorrel from the back garden and asparagus and garlic scapes (the flowering part of the garlic plant) from Reverence.
At Reverence the corn seedlings are up, the squash transplants are holding their own, the potatoes are coming up (please please please let more come up!), and the coles are doing beautifully. The garlic is also looking beautiful as are the onions. The only disappointment has been the peas and the spinach (but hey - there's always next season - plus maybe a shot at fall peas and spinach this year...).
So, once again, after the early season megrims, we are off and farming!
