Sorry blog readers and fans, i’ve been remodeling the kitchen…for the past month! needless to say, the garden has been demoted to second place when it comes to free time. Of course, it’s been such an accelerated spring and garden waits for no one, so i could be doing much more outside.
I just transplanted the first round of cool crops from the basement growlights. Cauliflower, napa cabbage, kale, and collards are in the ground. I also started kohlrabi, fennel, and regular green cabbage indoors as well, for transplanting in another 2 weeks. The eggplant and peppers seeds have just sprouted in the basement, and i’ll seed the tomatoes next week. As soon as i get a spare moment, i’ll direct (outdoors) seed some beets, lettuce, radishes, and diakon radish. I also put in the snap peas on St. Patrick’s day (that’s how i remember to plant peas…).
The flowers are taking off as well, and we’ll be getting the bluberry and apple flowers in soon too, as the buds are swelling rapidly.
