What a rainy spring we have had! Well rainy and cold. The cold has been harder on the plants than the rain I think, although our first srop of radish seeds did get pulverized into the ground by a nice heavy spring rain we had. We went up to the farm today to check and the radishes we planted last week are twice as big and had much better germination rate than the radishes we planted a month ago. That is the gamble you take when you plant early. Sometimes you get a great crop and sometimes you get nothing. I am not a big gambler, but in this particular situation I think it is worth the gamble ;) We gathered more big field rocks from the farmer's field today. You can read about this from last year here. We are putting some new flower beds in the front yard. The rocks we gathered today will be the border around that bed.
Baker Creek Seeds, one of our favorite seed companies. They include one free seed packet with your purchase. We planted them in a 4 ft bu 4 ft area and they seem to have germinated well.
Hoping we will have some stuff for our first farmers market, April 30th. Will keep you posted on our plants!
