  • I'm pooped. Had so much fun, I can't stand anymore. Ever since we got a riding mower that does not smoke, Deb cuts the grass so I was able to till with a hand tiller, plant, till and plant, till and plant.

    Having our first Bok Choy tonight. Could have had it sooner but just never got around to harvesting some. Sugar snap peas are still dismal. I planted more today using the nitrogen fixing bacteria I bought from Jungs. Half a row with and half a row without. We'll see if ti helps.

    I try not to till the whole garden any more, just the rows or area I plan to plant. The rest will stay mulched.

    I believe I will replace half the water in the pond tomorrow. See if I can get ahead of the algae flush.

    With this dry spell, it is a good time to try finishing the deck sealer as well. I'll probably be happy to see the work week start again. Well, at least a little bit.

  • I took advantage of the nice day to plant some cucumbers, a cantaloupe, a couple serano chiles to finish out my row of peppers. Planted a wide row of Blue Lake bush beans.

    Worked on the drip irrigation system in the garden, almost got it all done just waiting on a few more fittings I had to order last week. Steve, I'll get you some pics of the system soon. Using a combination of drip lines, emitters and some microsprays to cover the various crops.

    I'll be gathering some Mustard greens this week. Noticed some small heads on some of the cabbage, and some of the Broccoli is almost knee high and shading the row nicely.
