Just when I thought we wouldn’t have any more nights below freezing, we got a little surprise. Friday morning’s low was 31 degrees, and several of my plants showed it. However, I think NOW I can say spring is arriving. At least, we’re finally seeing all the signs around. Signs of Spring on my homestead!
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!
