The Garden Is In
After a slight delay due to rain, rain and more rain; the garden is finally in. We spent day #1 of the planting putting in the black cow and peat and day #2 planting the tomatoes, peppers and sweet potatoes. As of today, we have poppage!! The cucumbers have broken ground! We hope to see more coming up by the beginning of next week. I'd post a picture, but it would pretty much be just dirt to look at.......... Once the garden was in, we returned to the spring weeding and made some pretty serious inroads on that. Just to be outside..... Made some more mozzarella today and we are brining some more corned beef. (I make lots of dishes) The peaches are coming along very nicely. Hopefully all the little bags of mothballs will trick those nasty squirrel noses and they won't find them. Blueberries are looking great. They are beginning to have a little blue tinge to the berries. The chicks are growing like crazy and developing some funny traits - like feeding frenzies at weed-feeding treat times and greeting us for the daily poop scooping. They like to stand on the trowel or lay down where I am scooping poop - so cooperative! They have begun sleeping together on the top rung of the roost - all 8 of them!
