This week has been busy in our garden, both our potager and landscaping. I think the muscles in my back are proving that we overdid it… (Hubster said that I’m not allowed to have any sore muscles or back pain while I’m in my 20’s….)
Indoors: I sowed more seeds; lettuces, cabbage, and even some indoor radishes (I want to see how they perform indoors and might try to grow some year round…). I started more romaine and celery from kitchen scraps, and removed he potatoes from my kitchen windows sill to make room…
Outdoors:Hubster built me four new raised beds, one 1’x2′ for my Jerusalem artichokes (aka: sunchokes) and three 1.5’x1.5′ for my sweet potatoes, potatoes and blue potatoes.
In the largest raised bed I planted some cauliflower and celery starters I purchased from the local garden store. We had a few nights when temperatures dropped and frost hit, but I was prepared. I used glass bowls and vases as mini greenhouses to protect my tender plants.
This week’s weather look fantastic again (tomorrow is supposed to reach 88°F!!!), so I’m hoping my back feels better soon. I want to get a lot of outdoor work done…
