Stop by Daphe's Dandelions today to see what other gardeners are sharing this Harvest Monday. Our harvests are listed in the very last paragraph of this post.
This is our first year growing garlic, so we don't really know what to expect. From what other bloggers have written, we're gathering that our little plants are coming in very early. Should we be surprised? Probably not. The weatherman is forecasting 70 degree highs and 40 degree lows next week! I actually had to water them today!
We haven't posted for a while. We've been slowed down by the flu. C. James got it today. Here he is with his brother watching an episode of something. The only time he ever lets his brother play with his hair is when he's too sick to do anything about it!
We've been able to do a heavy soil amendment of the main garden this late winter. We put down about 2 inches of composted horse manure and another inch or so of ground up tree limbs and bark. We need more acid in our soil. We're hoping this, together with a heavy dose of food grade sulfur, will give good results. The dark garden looks great, but the whole thing will be useless, until we find a way to get it all turned in with the soil below. That's a lot of shoveling! Maybe Jane could share her tractor for a day!
|The area behind the lower fence is an addition this year. The whole area is about 30'x50'|
Happy gardening, especially as spring draws near!
