Planning & Planting

I love spreadsheets (probably a little too much). Many hours of research went into developing this year’s planting plan. We followed it diligently until a few days of heavy rain changed our plan into wishful thinking. Dan calls it farming. The ground has been too wet to till, so we have been sneaking plants into the ground whenever we can – sometimes by the light of a pickup truck.

Here’s a quick update:

  • Garlic and Horseradish are growing strong from last year.
  • In the ground: Broccoli, Red & Green Cabbages, Red & Yellow Onions, Cauliflower, Carrots, Swiss Chard, Spinach, Kale, Red & Yellow Potatoes, Snap Peas, Beets, Sweet Corn, Green Beans, and Radishes.
  • Seedlings to be transplanted soon: Tomatoes (so many tomatoes!), Cucumber, Peppers, Eggplant, Watermelon, Cantaloupe, Brussels Sprouts, and the next rounds of Broccoli and Cauliflower.

We did have a very productive Mother’s Day and took advantage of the beautiful day!
