A close up view of one of our broccoli plants. We also have cabbage plants growing, but the broccoli plants look better.
Here are some of the seedlings that Hope and I planted last week. The tomatoes and peppers haven't germinated yet. It hasn't been warm enough in the shop to make them germinate. That is why I usually float them in the bathtub. It just makes it much quicker, but I was hoping that I could make it work in the shop. Next week is suppose to turn cold so if they haven't germinated by the end of the weekend, to the bathtub they will go for a nice warm soak!
I also have potatoes sitting in my living room that are ready to be planted. Our tiller string broke so Michael hasn't been able to till the garden area. The potatoes look wonderful so I am hoping they will last just a bit longer until we can get the area tilled. I have left the box in the living room as a constant reminder that we need to get this done. You know the saying, "Out of sight, out of mind." That is a reality here in our home!!!
This is a busy season here on our little farm. If I don't stay on top of things, then I will not be ready for garden season. Our bees are also scheduled to arrive sometime next week. I will NOT be participating with their care. However, I do not mind helping to assemble the frames. That is a nice job that occurs in the safety of our shop without bees flying around my head!!!!!
grace and peace,
