it snowed here again late last evening but melted off this morning, things for the most part have pulled through it seems, but in Utah it is always safer to wait until mothers day to plant tomatoes
We had a heavy shower of rain this morning, its mid afternoon and 35c or 90f with a hot wind in April, middle of Autumn. Just checked my veggie garden and it all dryed out and plants wilting, I will have to get out and water tonight. AGAIN CRAZY
Harvesting heaps of ripe cherry tomatoes at the moment. Eating heaps of climbing beans and saved some for next years seed. Planted out all the flower seedlings I have grown for the flower beds, so now have room for my winter seedlings, cabbage, cauliflower and Brussels. At long last we have really good soft steady rain, so might have to wait a bit longer to plant them but I don,t mind. Time to catch up on indoor house work. In fact the sound of that rain on the roof makes me want to go back to bed.
Went down yesterday morning and found that 3 Cherry toms had popped out of the dirt so we are started here for spring to set in. All the other toms & peppers should be sprouting any day now.
I've also been regrowing the bottoms of the organic green onions I buy. Have a few celery bottoms in bowls of water watching them grow above the kitchen sink. Tasted the baby lettuce that was growing in the house it was bitter and was starting to bolt already. Much better at growing out doors when it is cool than in a hot house.
My little potting area on wheels.
Remember if you click on the pics in here they get bigger so you can actually see what is going on. So much dirt & leaves, so little time to get to plant veggies. Oh the 3 top pots are my new blueberry plants and the bottom 3 are asparagus that looks like it survived the winter as there are baby shoots coming up there too. WooHoo.
Just one little area of leaves and dirt.
Planted plenty of spinach, lettuce and gold & red beets to fill my green roof 6 x 10 ft box. Not too pretty old wire fence covers everything to keep chickens out. Next week I hope the guys (they are Iraqi Vets so I still call them my boys) will come & set up my fence to keep chickens in the barn area so I can begin the rest of the garden. The snow peas were raided at one end already! Those sneaky birds move the wire off whenever they see an opportunity. The greenhouse is waiting for cabbage, broccoli and celery to sprout for transplanting.
