The outdoor beds are in! It only took 2 days to do 26 beds. We are machines! Moving the main garden was definitely the right answer. These are so much easier to work on. We have had tornadoes all around us the past couple of days. Typical Colorado spring weather in the age of climate collapse. We are very pleased with how it’s all coming together though. Barring a direct hit, the garden ought to do pretty well this year.
Tomorrow is supposed to only be in the high 50’s so we will be able to get the greenhouse planted without having to swelter. The tomatoes are still looking pretty shocked after the sudden cold snap last week but I’m stubborn. We are going to plant them and see what happens. We can always buy replacements but that’s not my style. We’ll see if they green up in the next week or so and decide from there.
Oh ya. The turkeys are hatching!
Here’s the crop rundown: (For the infernal critics: the beds that look empty have those things called seeds in them)
Black Beans, Garlic, Beets, Strawberries, Shallots, Eggplant, Green Beans, Bell Peppers, Anaheim, Cubanelle and Poblano peppers, Jalapeños, Cayennes and Habaneros, Carrots, Cabbage, Acorn Squash, Zucchini, Butternut Squash, Spaghetti Squash, Sweet Potatoes, Yellow and Red Onions, Roma Tomatoes, Ace 55 slicing tomatoes, Cherry Tomatoes, Tomatillos, Celery, Kale, Spinach, Broccoli, Cauliflower, Cucumbers, Sage, Thyme, Rosemary, Oregano, Sunflowers, and Colorado Catnip. That ought to keep us busy.
