I have been lurking in the morning and evening's, but haven't had much to say. The garden is coming along well I have my seeds started in trays to
transplant and I have been tilling.(by hand with a shovel).500* square feet of raised beds and I'm adding another 100squared this year..hand
My parents think I'm crazy and want to rent a Roto tiller... I have tried to explain to them the way I do it I get all weed roots and have much less
maintenance..but they are Brown thumbs..lol
I'm about ready to plant the potato seeds I bought last week but am hesitant as we are due to get down into the twenties this week at night.. I'm not
in a rush with them, they will just continue to sprout eyes till planted.
I am soaking my garlic cloves/bulbs as we speak.. those are going in no matter what on Monday..if the seeds fail I'll just buy more..
We do pickles for preserving and we store potatos, we just ran out of last season's harvest of potato at the end of March.. the store bought we got
last week was a good reminder that nothing beats homegrown..
This year I have 68 cucumbers plants :
started in trays, so I can move them inside at night.. we plan to have many many pickles for us and gifts
It made me smile to see your post, thank you for thinking of me hun. And CONGRATULATIONS ON WRITER STATUS!
