Garden Update

I bought some six-packs at Putnam Farmer's Co-Op Sunday.

As they forecast for the next couple days is lows in the 40s, highs in the low 60s, overcast and/or light rain...looked like perfect weather to pop them in this afternoon.

And it's still officially April :D

Repaired the section of fence torn down last fall, a deer must've gotten inside and panicked. Rototiller fired up on the third pull :) Still a lot of weeding to do on this very unusual year when Forsythia, Dandelions, and Rhodendrons all bloomed at the same time...though I had the joy of seeing one weed that got frostbit last night! Then it was planting time:


If you look veeeery carefully you can see the Onions popping up between the weeds:

Interesting...the light greens are Lettuce from my attempted fall planting :D

Broccoli, Cauliflower, Red Lettuce, opposite side of trellis Green Leaf Lettuce, middle are peas.

Got the manure pile from last year leveled off. There used be four raised beds from the driveway to the fenced in portion. Now I've managed to fill it in to a flat area (it's all gravel fill under the area so I have to work for every bit of topsoil!)
