This evening when I checked the garden, I found that quite a few things are coming up. And not just weeds! Well, weeds too. But mostly veggies. I’m glad to see that the seedlings are enjoying the mild sunshine we’ve been getting and I plan to plant the other halves of these beds this weekend. We spaced out our planting (half the bed two weeks ago; the other half this weekend) so that we don’t have everything ripen all at once. Our little family of three can only eat, can, and preserve so much at once. Hopefully the two-weeks will be a good harvesting gap.
Also growing are the: blueberries, bulb onions, green bunching onions, broccoli, pie pumpkins, leeks, and cilantro. Yet to be seen are the: potatoes, carrots, and beets. Yet to be planted are the: honeydew melons, tomatoes, eggplant, gherkins, and paprika peppers.
Slightly unrelated to the garden, we have been selling our extra chicken eggs to friends, family, and co-workers. At three dollars a dozen we aren’t making any profit, but it does pay for their feed and (perhaps someday) their housing. One can dream.
