I beat the rain planting cucumbers, broccoli, butterhead lettuce and then more peas, beets, and green beans. Matthew didn’t want to hear that I was planting more potatoes with 124 potato plants already growing.
Yesterday, I started hilling the earliest potato plantings after thinning the weeds between the rows. I also cleared and turned a new section that were all weeds so today’s planting went quickly with the dirt already prepared. I don’t know if I had planted basil there too early or if I had changed my mind but weeds were the only thing to come up and I had waited long enough to no avail. Silly as it is to admit, I did plant the basil yesterday only to forget where? It was a short row on either side of something, the lettuce maybe?
With so much planted Matthew decided to assist documenting what I am planting where, as it is all getting away from me. Fortunately, I have no trouble recognizing the seedlings that have emerged and he was present for today’s sowing to put to record.
I harvested some young spinach and really early lettuce from my over crowded row of gourmet mix. With so much yielding, I thought I’d indulge as a means of thinning the spinach and lettuce rows.
Now I am ready for the four days of forecasted rain to arrive and take some well deserved time off from the garden.
