This has been a most interesting spring. One minute you are bundled up planting, and the next it is so extremely hot. Today was hot!
Keith and Steve getting the seed bed ready.
Keith planting 10 rows of onions: Walla, Walla; yellow; white and red.
Keith and Kristin both agree that even if we don’t need all of these onions, they will go to good use at the local food shelf.
We planted onion sets for all of the varities.
We planted 56 tomato plants: Big Boy, Yellow Girl, Brandywine, Roma and cherry tomatoes. We also planted a variety of peppers and broccoli.
Steve prepares trenches for us to bury the edges of the mulch.
We are trying green mulch this year to decrease soil borne diseases on the produce and assist with weed control. According to a studies the color green should increase production as well. Keith is getting a good strength workout on this project.
Steve, Sam and Keith the day we installed 12 rows of mulch. Yes, we were all tired that night. But, we are anxious to see the results it produces.
