Not Too Pretty..But Hopefully Productive

We have been impatiently waiting for enough dry weather to get our early spring crops in the ground. Sis has been lovingly tending several types of broccoli, cabbage and purple kohlrabi in the greenhouse. It is past time to have planted because these plants will simply not make anything once the weather gets hot and they need time to grow. Earlier this week I checked on the small sandy plot we have on top of the hill.Though wet, it looked like we could possibly plant by digging between the rows left from last fall. Our thinking is once it is finally dry enough we'll just till the existing old crops in the ground. So that is what we did!
Using a shovel we dug holes and planted around 215 plants. We'll keep you posted on this experiment!
