Garden Chat – April 11, 2018

Hoping for a weather change, it is very wet and cold.

  • Planted outdoors Chinese greens, lettuce, radish, kale, chicory, endive
  • Started regular cabbage and Napa cabbage are waiting in the greenhouse in flats; these were started indoors
  • Currently plant sitting my new starts – tomatoes, eggplants, peppers and tomatillos
  • Ground cherries did not come up and haven’t retried them
  • All beds except the greenhouse and one bed with last year’s greens have been amened with seaweed, COF, and compost
  • All but one bed has had three or so inches of new organic peat loam & composted organic steer manure soil added for planting.  No digging.
  • Had 10 yards of organic soil delivered from Cinnabar Farms.  Very pleased with it.
  • Newly build beds of roofing tin, 4 x 9 x 2 ½ feet have been filled and amended  plus two furnace ducts modified for beds for greens.
  • Will plant some of the carrots, beets and kohlrabi next week in the sunshine!!
