Turning the Dream into Reality

More Planting April 21, 2010

Yesterday morning, one of our neighbors brought over a couple black plum trees that she had dug up from a friends orchard.  So we now have a plum row started in our orchard, taking our tree count up to 14.  She also gave me a couple of grape starts.  She said I was to plant them as they are, which is just a couple sticks, so we will see how those do.  They were planted along the fence by the berry patch. 

I managed to get the first bed of carrots and some onions planted in the garden.  The first row of radishes are coming up and I will plant the second row early next week.  Kale and cabbage are next on the list, followed closely by broccoli and potatoes.

The last few days have been just beautiful.  Bright sunshine and warm afternoons.  Today is much cooler, so I will most likely work on some inside projects while letting my sunburned arms take a rest.
