Well, it is Earth Day Right? Lets talk green!
I worked in the garden for most of the morning, weeding is starting to become a morning ritual already. I only hope the veggies grow as well as the weeds seem to be.
I do have bits of green poking throughRight now I honestly can’t say if these are the Dragon Tongue beans or regular bush beans because…I just knew I would remember exactly what was planted where….right.
That worked out well! So, I may or may not have room for 2-3 rows more of something but since Buddy ate my row markers I’m stuck until everything starts sprouting. But the good news is things are sprouting, I’m seeing tiny bits of green poking through. I know its going to happen, but every day (2-3 times) I step out to the garden excitedly checking the progress. The tomato seedlings , Roma, Celebrity & Better Boys 20 in all went in today along with a few rows of pinto beans. Thanks Kat for the seed source! Loofah & white scalloped squash I planted in the earth boxes on the back deck. This is the first time I’ve planted loofah so any growing/tending pointers you could send my way will be appreciated. I want to soak them in home made soap and use for gifts this Christmas.
Rain is called for tonight so it looks like I got everything in just in time.
My compost bin/pile was not “composting”. I realized I was way off on ratio of greens to browns and it was not moist enough. With that adjusted I’m hoping things will now start breaking down.
Isaiah’s daily chore is to take the house scraps out to the compost bin. This past winter it was fun to play in the snow on the way down. Now that its nice there are dirt piles and wood piles and roads to build that distract him. The other day I said “I need you to take the compost out”…he came in and took the can with a disgruntled sigh and said…”just call me compost boy”…..so who am I to disappoint….
”Oh, Compost Boy”
