The plants are in… well, half of them anyway

I was greeted by the song of this little fella on the garden fence…

Well, I did get by butt in the garden, but after a little over 6 hours, I only planted about half of what I had hoped to! I planned to hold off on planting peppers and tomatoes because we live in northern New England, where you n.e.v.e.r know when winter will actually end, but I had planned on getting everything else in the ground. Wishful thinking. I definitely needed Ty to help plant. I think the size of our garden this year requires two people to complete any task in a reasonable amount of time.

I planted snap peas, carrots, radishes, beets, wax and green beans from seed and I got a whole bunch of other ‘starts’ into the dirt.

Have you ever seen Cilantro like this? I may have picked and nibbled a few leaves…

Rain on the way. Forecast is calling for a perfect week of warmth, sun, and drizzle. I’ve got to get the rest planted!!

I pass this wild apple on every trip to the garden. Thank you Johnny for giving Vermont such an abundance of a beautiful tree!
