Since it's still soaking wet outside, we haven't been able to plant the main garden. The hoop house however, has nice dry soil and a warm environment, ripe for planting. So we did.
Limey made the beds five feet wide despite my warnings. It's way too wide but he said he will deal with it. We planted various lettuces, mizuna and kale. I picked up a couple of artichokes on a whim and stuck them at the back. I feel like I'm really late in planting this year. Back in Tbay I had stuff in the ground as soon as the snow was gone. I also had permanent raised beds. Because everything is new here we have to wait for the soil to drain before planting. Next year when all the beds are already in place and with the hoophouse already up, we should be able to get started much earlier.
Already we have little seedlings. Once things get going, I'm hoping to set up a weekly fresh produce box for our customers. I guess it's like a CSA without the large cash payment up front and long term commitment. If you want it this week, we'll deliver it, if not, we'll talk to you again next week.
What do you have planted?
