It’s been overall a good weekend. All five gardens have been tilled and most of the beds and rows are now made. Tomatoes, Jerusalem artichokes and potatoes are all planted in their various sections. Much wild foraging done and we are up to our ears in wild greens and domestic asparagus and hosta. Daphne has made many rounds of rich spring cheese, now pressed and aging in their wax in the root cellar. But it’ll be at least a week til the hectic planting season days are done. Things yet to accomlish: plant most of the garden vegetables and the remaining root plants of rutabaga and golden beets, build climbing poles for the arctic kiwis, wall up new plasticulture strawberry beds and prep ground for matted furrow strawberry beds on the far side of the Garden Lands, bottle many gallons of apple scrumpy and pinot noir, start a batch of Riesling, and continue building the new stone fire pit and pole gazebo. After all that’s done, I have to get busy.
