Spritzing and Spraying
|Solo 4 Gallon Backpack Sprayer|
|Raspberries in the foreground, blackberries in the middle. Hopefully the holistic sprays will encourage bountiful harvests.|
|The bin is close to the coop and to the garden.|
Hardly a day goes by when we're not planting something.
|We planted onion transplants this year rather than trying to grow them from seed.|
Growing onions from transplants instead of seed seems like cheating, but maybe we'll actually get some good sized onions this year.
|"Music" variety garlic|
The garlic we planted last fall all sprouted and is doing great.
|"Encore" lettuce mix and "Corvair" spinach|
The first of many boxes of salad greens have sprouted.
|My usually June-bearing strawberries are in bloom|
|Peas! We outsmarted the mice this year|
Hubby Dear's relentless trapping of mice in our garden has resulted in many more seeds surviving long enough to sprout. Yippee for peas!
|I love our garden|
If you've been following my garden adventures, you might notice that we switched out the wooden lattice-style square foot grids for ones made of twine. We decided that the wooden grids simply take up too much room and make weeding and planting difficult. Hubby Dear installed metal screw eyes to the sides of the boxes and ran the twine through. We are much happier with the result.
Seed Starting Results
The seeds we planted in the little Jiffy Pot greenhouse took off rapidly. We're now in the process of hardening off the seedlings.
