The garden had been put on the back burner for a couple of months due to some unforeseen issues. So I know we’re behind and will not be able to plant anything that would not harvest in the next 90 days or so. We had our first freeze last year, just before Thanksgiving.
Last weekend the Moose put up a water gutter for me to house small items, like salad greens. They were up in 3 days. This helps so I don't have to bend over as much for smaller items like greens.
He put up three more gutters for me this past weekend, and shaded another area too. I was able to plant, peas, spinach, radishes, lettuce, herbs, beans, squash and carrots. I also transplanted tomatoes and pepper plants.
I still have more tomato, cabbage, broccoli, brussel sprouts and cauliflower to transplant, but that’s for the upcoming weekend project. I have heirloom watermelon that sprouted (see the bottom of this photo) from seeds that came along with the chicken coop compost and are well on their way. That was the easiest bit of gardening I’ve had to do..
Now we wait and see.
I have some asparagus growing, has anybody worked with it before? What do I need to know?
