So we’ve made it through three days straight of greenhouse building. Michelle has taken the week off to accomplish this task. The two of us have worked continually for the last 3 days. It’s amazing the muscles that you didn’t realize you had in the aches that could be even possible. Makes me realize how sedentary my life is sitting in an office chair. Today invites snow which does not allow us to run the electrical tools we need to start framing the end walls. Our bodies are thankful for the day of rest. It is beautiful outside watching the snowfall.
Garlic coming along nicely. Scapes should be appearing soon.
I love this tree – so grand and glorious.
Look at this a red strawberry on June 9th in central New Hampshire? Yes, there were a couple yesterday too and boy were they good!
Blueberry trees loaded!
Here comes the garlic scapes!!!
Glorious Head Lettuce
Beautiful shot of the garden this morning at 5:30 a.m. What a lovely site!
Ok just finished day 2 of a 5 day weekend. Accomplished a lot today too much too list but the highlights were – eating the fresh greens from our garden (in the picture). Yesterday, we went to pick up rock dust from a MA farm – this is part of our remineralizing the land – the color was unbelievable, a pearlescent blue/green/gray – gorgeous and shimmering color – it just glowed in the garden. I’m sure the land is very happy right now.
What a gorgeous day. I was outside all day long. I can now check off the following things from my list:
- Planted the gorgeous swiss chard to the right in the picture above in the garden (about 80 plants).
- Planted 135 feet of yellow beans
- Planted 135 feet of green beans
- Planted 180 feet of cut lettuce
- Planted 240 feet of carrots
- Planted 160 feet of beets
- Not on the list but had some extra time – weeded the entire greenhouse
- Planted a flat of head lettuce
- Planted a flat of pickling cukes
- Planted a flat of Orient Express cukes (new variety this year)
- Did three loads of laundry and hung it outside to dry
- Made a new dessert recipe for supper: Rhubard Maple Toasted Bread Pudding
- Made a new recipe for supper: Greek Spinach-Asparagus-Potato Gratin
Spreading our “gold” compost onto the garden.
