Spring Garden Log -- March 12, 2017

Saturday was a work day in the garden, and I mean WORK! John and I were both out there most of the day -- he was working in the vineyard, and I was working in the vegetable garden. We were both exhausted by the end of the day...a good kind of exhausted!

I planted Bed #1C 

  1. Celery - Utah Tall
  2. Spinach - Regiment
  3. Spinach - Red Kitten
  4. Pak Choy - Extra Dwarf

I know -- I swore I was done with spinach --- but I just can't give it up. I can't seem to grow it. Don't know why....but I keep trying like doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different outcome. Sigh...

Then I planted two different types of sorghum in the field for the chickens. These were kind of interesting - Mennonite Sorghum and White African. There's two short rows of both at the back, and in the front I transplanted the Red Garnet Amaranth, which is another grain if you let it go to seed.
 Then I started cleaning up the Squash House so that we can till around it and add compost. That's going to be a big job -- so many weeds. 

Our big Methley Plum tree has finally started to bloom.  Such beautiful flowers - between this tree and the Tangerine Vine, we have bees buzzing all over the place! Good for the garden.
