Planted last week: Potatoes, snow peas, the rest of the onion plants, herb seed, cut flower seed, carrots, beets, and a 1.5 acre pasture.
This week: Flowers, herb plants, and maybe some beans and corn. Progress on the field peas is slow.. it’s rather a chore. The wheat is up!
The rain is coming every 2-3 days. It’s great for the seed, but I can’t work out in the field when it’s pure mud. If conditions stay warm for more than three days in a row, maybe the tomatoes and potato seedlings will get to go out.
Earlier this spring I tripped on the stairs with a flat of lettuce seedlings. They had to be put in the ground immediately thereafter to ensure their survival, and the field was not plowed at that time. I ended up planting them in a bed I was making in the back yard. They are starting to look edible. If we have a few days of warm weather, I’ll have some lettuce for my early, pre-farmer’s market customers. Next year I hope for this space in the back yard to be a strawberry patch!
