the garden

With the exception of a day or two, the weather hasn’t been so nice that I find myself wanting to go outside and garden in the evening. But, I received my onion plants this week, so that forced my hand. Tuesday evening had me weeding and adding soil amendments (greensand and lime). Then on Wednesday, I planted onions, peas, and Swiss chard.

My garlic is looking fantastic. The stuff that was covered for winter fared really well; the ones that I cut back in the fall look good, but not as good as the stuff that was covered. We’ll see how everything ends up at harvest time.
