Yes, it has begun!
Spring and so much work! Look, green!
The red buds are blooming all over the place!
Today I spent several hours tilling and planting. A little less than half of the garden space I currently have.If I can get the sheep moved over to a new pasture soon I will be able to increase my garden space .Right now they are right next to my garden in a temporary field. If I don't get them moved soon I can always fall garden in that spot!
I got corn, Roma beans, soup beans and purple hull peas planted and some yellow squash set out. I also planted seeds to go in the hot house for my winter squash and watermelons,I don't have their space ready yet,but I wanted to get them started so they have a good chance this summer.
Here are some pictures of what is going on in the hot house. Yes,I made a hillbilly repair with orange duct tape.The door is the only place I have had to repair.It has held up well!
The very biggest tomatoes I bought from the feed store.Some of mine are not far behind though!
I will plant a few weeks earlier next year I think! I learned a lot from starting all these seeds.
The hot house is not a green house and it will freeze inside! The central heat will dry out seedlings before you know it! Needless to say I had some replants! As I always tell The Boy, it is never a mistake if you learn something from it! I even planted some carrots in the pot I use to hold open the door! I will plant stuff any where I can find or fill up with some dirt!
Here is one of my raised beds. I hope to make some more over the next few weeks.
It has strawberries, onions around the sides and mini bok choy in the center.On the end is a cattle panel with malabar spinach soon to grow up it.
Boy,I have so many garden plans! I sure hope I can keep up the energy to get it all done!
