What an eventful week! Winter Storm Pax visited us for a couple of days, and the entire area was covered in ice. (For pictures, click here.) I was very blessed in that my property had no damage. My yard was full of small branches, though, which I gathered up as kindling for my fireplace. After the last ice storm (Winter Storm Leon), I was surprised that my seedlings had survived. I thought for sure they wouldn’t make it through this ice storm, but they did! This week’s garden pictures!
Yesterday was a big day in the garden. It’s the most time I’ve spent in the garden in a long time. The temperature was 67 degrees, and I loved it! I planted 38 potato plants – red, purple, and fingerlings. Then I trimmed the ice-caused dead leaves off my garlic and added fertilizer and Azomite to the bed. Next, I weeded the asparagus and added Azomite to that bed, as well. Finally, I fertilized the apple trees. (I’m a few weeks late with that, but it’s an organic fertlizer; so I should be okay.) After the gardening chores, I examined my seedlings and was amazed. Pictures of a resurrected garden!
