Up & running
Thursday, 05 May 11
My organic garden is now at full steam ahead. Last weekend I planted the last few tomatoes (I know – like I didn’t have a ton already) and the last seeds of things I wanted to start (like another round of spinach). So far I’ve been able to harvest three batches of some of the tastiest spinach ever (even the stems were tender), plenty of lettuce, and a dozen or so radishes.
Carrots are now 3 inches high. I think I’ll pull a few babies around Memorial Weekend. Many of the tomato plants are budding, Stupice is already blooming.
The past two nights we had a cold front. Evening temps were down in the forties. That seems to be no problem for the tomatoes, they appear to be quite happy and not at all stressed.
The is some kind of critter which keeps burrowing a hole in one raised bed but hasn’t messed with any of the plants. I’m thinking it might be a field mouse family, the burrow is about an inch in diameter. Should I be worried?
