Catching Up in the Garden

On Monday it wasn't dry enough, but I tilled some beds in the big field anyway.

I seeded 6 long beds with double rows of dry beans. Then we went off to the Junior High Graduation.

Tuesday was a big day. It was drier, so we worked up a lot of ground. We planted sweet corn, field corn, popcorn and broom corn. In all we planted 8 trays of corn, 400 plants per tray. Instant corn field.

Then today, we rolled out the biodegradable plastic mulch that will heat the soil for us to plant the heat-loving crops tomorrow. So tomorrow is planting of cucumbers, zucchini, melons, eggplant, peppers.

Today we also planted flowers for cutting, basil, parsley, soybeans, and blue flour corn.

By Friday we will be over the hump and mostly planted. I hope.
