I had to work today but managed to get home at a reasonable hour. Fortunately, since we only had a tiny shower this morning- the garden was READY!! Of course, as soon as I got home it started clouding up and more rain is moving in. Looking at the radar it looks like it may miss us again- I'm hoping so, because I didn't get everything in that I wanted. But... I did get my cabbage, kale, cauliflower and broccoli plants in and under floating row covers. I'm using the row covers for dual purpose- not only protection from insects but also from the deer and rabbits that are so casually wandering through. This is my first year with row covers and I'm eager to see how they turn out.
Tomorrow, if it doesn't rain too much, I'm putting in my other early crops- my onions and leeks as well as planting peas, radishes, beets, carrots and some greens (lettuce, chard, spinach). I've got little romaine starts ready to go as well.
Gardening season is finally here. Hooray!! Therapy!!
