Too Busy

The lettuce that was growing in the box in the greenhouse has all been eaten. In its place I planted one tomato plant, a Cherokee Purple, to see if we can get tomatoes earlier. (Last year, our first tomatoes came in the last week of June.) These other tomato plants have been sitting in the greenhouse sucking up every drop of fertilizer and water I give them. We’ve just been too busy to finish prepping the tomato bed…. Such is the life of an urban farmer.

Spring Continues

Rain the next few days…
Potatoes are up and growing faster than the bugs can munch. Well, mostly. The snap peas have begun to find their strings. Some of the lettuce is up and healthy but there still seems to be a problem with bugs, birds, planting the seed too deep, or just drying out… scratch the last one. The kadota fig’s breba crop is produced in the spring on the previous year’s growth. Interesting. The winter wheat is getting ready to seed. Time to pull up and compost…
Sweet, sweet rain….
