Oh my! A whole week went by without a post!! Well I have a good reason for not posting. I have been out in the garden planting!
On Sunday Mr. P brought the tractor over and till the gardens for me. So much easier using the tractor/tiller than the ole walk behind tiller we use to use. Once the ground was ready to go I was itching to get started! Now I am sure most people would be able to get everything planted in one day. I am not that person; I would love to be able to do that. However, my health has me only able to plant for 2 hours a day before I have to go in with early signs of heat stroke. Nonetheless, every little bit counts and I hope to have everything in by the week-end!
Okay I know the pictures below are going to just look like dirt with sticks..but there are things planted..LOL
Monday night Mr.P and I got the potato plot planted with 88 Norland Potatoes
We also got 2 rows of tenderlong carrots, and 2 rows on yellow onion sets planted before the mosquitoes got too bad and we had to go in.
On Tuesday I got 2 rows of red onions sets, 1 row pickling onion seedlings, 3 rows leek seedlings, and 1 row on green onion seedlings planted.
On Wednesday I got 1 row Detroit beets, 1 row Italian beets, 1 row gold beets, 2 rows easter egg radishes, 2 rows spinach, 2 rows lettuce, 3 rows peas, and 2 rows broad beans!
I got in a few more rows today and my flower baskets, but no pictures yet. One of the full hanging baskets fell on my head and I had to call it a day
I still have all of this to plant, plus the back garden!!
It doesn’t seem like a lot ..it is a lot and I haven’t even started to really plant my seedlings yet. They are all still in here!!
lol forgot to flip the pic....seedlings in the green house
flowers and a few veggies
I also started a few more seedlings, red cabbage, Chinese cabbage, basil, chamomile and water melons.
So if you don’t hear from me in a few more days you can see why!!
