Since I am still feeling sub par, today will not be as busy a day as I had planned, but I will take you on a tour around and show you what is going on in the garden.
Tomato seedlings are out for the day to harden off . The other flats are just getting started, but the weather is finally warm enough to start them outside.
pickled daikon . They make flavorful compliments to simple meals.
This is a busy time of year for us, starting seeds, preparing beds, managing the winter crops trying to eek out a couple more week of food, and putting plans in place for more beds to expand our growing area. I also have been spending time enjoying the warmth of the sun, the birds, bees and butterflies and soaking up as much of the pretty spring weather as I can, before it gets too hot. Our spring here is short but sweet and then we have unrelenting heat and no rain to speak of for the whole summer. We have designed our gardens to weather the heat and the drought, by heavy composting and deep mulches to keep the moisture in. I just wish that there was something that I could do that would make me more heat tolerant!
I hope you enjoyed the stroll around the garden with me and that you will come back for a visit soon!
