A diary of the day to day happenings on our homestead.The good days, the bad days and those bordering on total chaos...

With the drier days the lower garden was finally plowed. Once the grass dries a bit, Doug will disk it and then set the rows. Cinderella pumpkins, Ledman watermelons and cantaloupe seeds have been sown in the greenhouse with hopes of having a head start once the garden is ready.
Every single thing that I have purchased, plant wise, is finally in the ground. Well, except for a lone azalea bush that has lived in a pot for two years. Soon, darling, soon...
Among them were red salvia around the fountain, assorted herbs from the green house and a variegated wigelia bush.
I also put some horseradish root in a pot. Not much to see, yet. I should be able to harvest some this fall, but the most pungent roots will be ready in the Spring.
The kale has finally bolted and I need to find time to freeze at least a few packs. I have become quite addicted to kale risotto. I will be sad to see it go..
