Garden under way!May 1st, 2017
Two weeks ago I planted started cabbage and broccoli plants in our garden. They are growing nicely. Today I will work the soil around them and add a little more fertilizer. I also sowed lettuce, spinach, dill, beets and potatoes. The lettuce, spinach and beets are coming up nicely. No sign of the potatoes yet. When they start to pop though the soil I will bring more soil around them. Eventually there will be a mound of soil around each potato plant. Still in my kitchen, under grow light,are our tender vegetables. I have 30 tomato plants and 23 pepper plants.These will be hardened off and then planted when all danger of frost has passed. We plan to can lots of tomato juice and whole tomatoes this year.
