No Catawba

Because of the uncertainty of David’s health we have decided to give up our plot at Catawba. If David gets laid up for a while I can do the work around here and not have to worry about getting a ride over the mountain.

 

 

 

David planted some of the potatoes, which were intended for Catawba, next to the main tomato patch and a flat area below this patch.

Damn Groundhogs

We had our first groundhog attack this week, it hit the cabbage. David recovered the cabbage with netting; it was covered in the spring to protect the tender seedlings and uncovered when they got bigger so it would be easier to hoe around them and water. Big Mistake! We thought recovering them with netting would work but the damn groundhog found a way under it. Stay tuned for latest report.

 

After harvesting onions for market David tilled the ground and filled the empty space with Roma beans.

 

 

 

The Contenders growing next to them are in full bloom. We should have beans in a few weeks.

The Blackberries are in full bloom as well.
