We spent a lot of time in the garden yesterday trying to get as much done as possible before the onslaught of summer really begins. While everything is planted out much sooner than it was last year at this time, I just can't seem to shake this overwhelming urge to get everything in the ground "right now"!
So, I'm clearing the last remaining spaces as quickly as possible, sticking seeds in tiny holes left by over-wintered veggies and trying my best to be patient while those same over-wintered veggies finish up going to seed (kale, beets, carrots, turnips and radishes).
While waiting patiently for the peas and strawberries to be ready, I'm still nursing along 2 kale plants that I'm only pulling from when necessary. I also had my very first rhubarb harvest of the year yesterday! This harvest is especially exciting since it's our first real rhubarb harvest ever (I think we got one stalk last year, which doesn't really count, does it?)! Our rhubarb has been so much happier in the ground than it ever was in the big pot we used to have it in!
I must say, I am very excited about this season and all of the promise growing happily in the garden!
This weeks totals:
- Rhubarb = 12 oz
- Kale = 1 oz
- Eggs = 19 eggs
Hope everyone has a fabulous day!
