Let the Growing Begin!!!!!!!

Today we are coming to you 'live' from the County Library. Beatrice is busy shelving books and I am here blogging away.

The soil finally warmed up, dryed out and turned nicely so the only thing to do was PLANT. And that is what happened yesterday. After retilling the first bed and then seting in the rows, the seeds started flying into the ground. Well maybe not flying but a lot got planted. Lettuce, spinach, parsnips, beets, onions, scallions, carrots, and peas (a little late but what the heck). I'm sure the good Lord was smiling because He watered all the new seedlings last night and this morning with a nice gentle rain.

CRITTER NEWS: The first of the Purple Martins arrived Wednesday, so up went the house. Now we have to wait and see who take up residence this year.
Today is "back recovery day". A day to enjoy the flowers on the peach tree (and hope for a good year) and get the seedlings in the Bio-Dome ready to make the big move outside in two weeks.

Somewhere around the 22nd of this month the second round of seeds will get planted so we have a continuous crop of greens through the summer and hopefully into the winter. We will also set out the tomatoes and peppers then, get the first plot of corn in for 4th of July, squash and zucchini (yes only ONE hill this year!!!), and what ever else we can (except for the pumpkins).

The rest of this weekend is for fun. 2nd Friday tonight, Elks sale tomorrow, rearrange storage, eat on the porch. Maybe take a trip to the Zoo on Sunday. Basically just enjoy ourselves. And we hope that you will take some time and enjoy your weekend also.

Sounds like some great weekend plans. The vegetable garden should make wonderful summertime eating too.
