Probably half of the fields in our area have yet to be planted, so I feel lucky to have gotten as much going in the garden as I have. It's going to be a weedy year--cold wet soils will always bloom lots of weeds because there's no way to get in there. But things are moving along.
|May 27 I planted four rows of popcorn in the East strip. I think there is some good soil here to grow some popcorn well.|
|As we move West things get dicier--you can see the bloom of weeds to the right. The soil is saturated and can't be worked. But I did manage to create these raised beds for the tomatoes.|
|Here is what the Red Fife looked like on May 28.|
|I also disced the Windhaven field on May 28. I'm happy that things are knocked back fairly well. If I can just keep it black I will be able to prepare the field well.|
