Finally! The CG is officially planted! It seemed to be taking eons to find the right combination of time and weather (mainly) to put the bed into action. A week’s absence in May provided a view that the greens had indeed grown to thinning size. Our beloved deer took advantage of my roses and apple buds in the house yard while I was gone. Good thing two of us had a hunch he might show up, and we netted the greens before I left.
Memorial Day late afternoon and a subsequent evening accommodated all the corn, squash, melons, and beans sowing we desired, along with tomato transplants. Red jackets a must for the tomatoes, given our constantly-shifting weather.
Six pounds of overwintering kale and chard was harvested and cut so new could be seeded. Most went to the food bank.
A recent hot-spot weekend had us configuring grabbing and connecting the water hoses. Soaker hose layout coming up soon.
Anybody feeling time compression? I can’t keep up!
