Another cool, damp week in this mainly cool, damp spring means many veggies and flowers are just starting to be harvestable. With warmer weather on the way, this should only increase over the next few weeks.
And as some of the root vegetables are ready to pull out, other roots need to be protected from the underground rodents that want to eat them all before they can bloom. Thus, I've developed sunken beds to protect all those roots from all those rodents!
All that rain has made a very lush field of grass, perfect for the new fawns to hide in, the old hens to peck in, and for me to start thinking about cutting some down for some old-fashioned hay and straw.
That same rain also makes the lettuce juicy and tender, there's lots of it available this week (along with other greens) and there are still some lemons!
2 sunken beds with the Ranunculus and 1 of Anemone are happy as can be! And so will I when I can dig up and save their tubers each fall to replant the following spring! One more bed to build for the current tulips to relocate to and a few more that will wait for future tulips and all will be safe to rebloom each year!
The beginnings of a super sturdy storage shed. My parents have been hard at work getting the posts cemented in for the new shed that will replace the metal framed 'garage' that was destroyed this winter in the big wind storm. Gotta have a great place to store the lawn mowers and snow throwers and two wheel tractor!
What's available this week?
I'm Farmer Megan with a life full of cackles, clucks, quacks, weeds, crazy kitten, and one tiny, senior, blind dog.
