Go green


"Thou shalt bring them in, and plant them in the mountain of thine inheritance, in the place, O LORD, which thou hast made for thee to dwell in, in the Sanctuary, O LORD, which thy hands have established." Really greening up. A hot week led into a beautiful rainy weekend. Perfect planting weather. We put in carrots, some hardy herbs, and more peas and greens. Also set out the first set of broccoli starts. Three varieties ( Dicicco, Atlantic, and Calabrese). Twenty-eight starts along a forty foot row.Some marigolds are starting to peek out.
The taters are up and loving the weather.
The onions are big enough to get a mulch of straw.
The peas, greens and radishes we put in last weekend are up and going off. Not much else going on. Just another ho hum week in paradise.
