Planting proceeds at last!
Thursday, April 25, 2013
April 25th.. the last day for planting peas (under the best conditions) in our little shire, so I soaked them and got them in our garden and the community one as well.
It's a good thing that the snow
melted last Saturday while I was at the
Ladies' Retreat in Maine.
I also put the kale and arugula in the cold frame and started some lettuces there. The Brussel Sprouts are in the ground, but covered with plastic.
According to the charts, I can rest until early May, when I put in the radishes and start some chards.
The woods are inviting now for walks.
But some paths need a bit of tending after the storms of winter.
Since the shade is back on our garden swing, I planned to have our early dinner of chicken, broccoli, baked potato and carrots/celery with tzatziki and almond butter outside. The black flies aren't yet here. So in the warmth of a sunny afternoon, it would have been perfect. Unfortunately the planting took me longer that I anticipated. However, tomorrow's another day
Hope you all have a blessed evening/morning - whatever time it is now where you are!
