I watch to see if wild bunny is in veggie patch. Going to plant more veggies this season so can freeze. Last year left planting too late and had nothing to freeze and use over winter. If I had those tunnels to put over each row maybe I would have had some veggies last year. Going to try Kohlrabi and artichoke and was thinking watermelon too. Some will glean to church Food Pantry Wednesday mornings. Nice to hear back from you Vicky. Wonder how William is doing?
I found some purple podded organic pea seeds. Just need to build cages to keep bunnies out.
Yes Spring is on it's way here. I did harvest some mustard greens, spinach, and sad radishes, they were all greens and tiny roots out of the shelf greenhouses. There is cilantro in there too. Also some beets trying to grow.Started seeds too on the porch and in one of the boxes in greenhouses the others I cut and waiting for them to regrow. Still need to get my raised beds in and ways to water in them. Bought more organic seed been reading my books and newsletters trying to get excited and remember, when, where and what to and not to plant by each other. Sunday was the new moon so I turned everyone else out and did my thing.
Seems like early Spring where I live and Eastern states along coast and Eastern Canadian coastal provinces are having awful time right now. Another dump of snow. But the Prairies where I am in Southern Alberta looking good. Just cannot plant veggies yet. Lilacs leaf budding. Been giving leftovers of veggies to wild rabbit under my tent trailer. Just something to talk to.
Day time temps are still 30c or 80f and higher and not falling below 20c or 70f at night, it has cooled down quite a lot, I can now get out during the day if I want too. Still watering every night by hand and have been since the start of September. My last water bill was very bad.
Must get up her and tidy my tomatoes they have gone wild, they will not ripen so a bit annoying. They keep growing and not very much fruit.
My corn crop is the best ever and starting to eat it.
I see all in the US is starting come out of the cold winter. Very good. I have had a very long dry hot summer. We had no spring rain and everything is out of season and confused. Had a feed of broad beans last night, can,t say that love them but they grow easy. The little rain that we have had brought rust and other fungus diseases so did more harm than good.
Starting tomato seeds in the house for early cherry types, indeterminate. I will buy just 2 plants of larger determinate in early May when they are big size & it's warm in the greenhouse. Planting pea pods & sweet peas today & tomorrow. Supposed to be 60 degrees here. The soil is warmer after 3 days of this sunshine. . .
I too have not been well since yesterday. Tonight going to get real cold and Sunday too. Then next week some sort of warm temperatures, Chinook weather.
Have to remember medicine from Naturopath doctor.
Still spreading the used coffee grounds once a week on lawn area.
An other dusting of snow this morning. I finally got out yesterday and unzipped the shelf greenhouse covers. Things are still growing in there. Bugs are in the herbs on the porch. Greens planted before the new moon are up. Feeling sicky all week grrrrrrr.
