Yes we appreciate the moisture. Yes we appreciate that it has been cool weather. BUT! it finally cleared and dried enough to till the beds!! We are back on track!
Farmer Jon was out on the little tractor and tilled up the garden beds. It was with the 4×4 engaged and in low range gear climbing over the hills and valleys of the piles that have been sitting there waiting for weeks! Aaron took over after that task was completed and tilled up the corn and sunflower patch. Zina started weeding what the tiller didn’t rip up and the garden area now looks like a garden!
The forecast is for the evening temperatures to be right around fifty for most of the next week. Because of this warm up the plants in the grow room can now go out behind the house to harden off.
It looks like we will actually be planting on Memorial Day weekend! Grandma better be ready for some serious digging in the dirt! – or anyone else who wants to help for that matter!
