No Dancing This Week

David finished planting the Green Giant evergreens along our border and tilled up the old kale bed in anticipation of being out of commission, for a day or two, because of his CT guided ablation procedure he experienced on Tuesday.

 

——————————————————-

He was right! The anesthesia knocked him for a loop and the after procedure pain was more intense than expected.

However, on Friday and Saturday he made up for lost time.

 

 

 

We removed the winter cover from tunnel A and put up a critter barrier.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then David weeded the cabbage and planted his 1st rotation of Contender beans.

 

 

 

 

On Saturday David tilled our tomato rows again and I set out about 100 plants. Then David covered them with netting for protection. He also worked up a bed for his Roma beans.

David’s beans are coming up and will be planted out in a few weeks.

He also started some cucumbers and squash for market retail. They are just starting to break the surface.

 

 

 

 

 

The purple cauliflower that survived our coldest days of winter has gone to seed. This plant is an example of survival of the fittest and natural selection at work, with a little help from humans.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 The tomato seedlings are ready for market and the peas are in full bloom

David bought 15 Green Giant trees from Tim Belcher

of Rolling Meadows Farm and started to plant them.
