Crisp and Bright

What gorgeous weather we are having!  I am trying to soak it all in before he humidity comes and zaps all of my energy.  We had a great crew yesterday and got zucchini, summer squash, cucumbers, melons and half of the winter squash planted.  Wednesday will be the rest of the squash, sweet potatoes and strawberries …. and then we move on to weeding.  We have been using more plastic mulch and landscape fabric which I am not psyched about but it has many benefits 1) the plants LOVE it 2) it warms the soil in the spring 3) and maintains moisture 4) plus it suppresses weeds, which I am hoping we can save several hours of hand weeding this year!!!

We are back on irrigating … pray for an evening rain shower this week.  Everything is looking happy though and we have lots to harvest …. so short blog this week, I gotta get back to it!

This week’s bounty: lettuce, arugula, spinach, chard, asparagus, parsnip, dill, cilantro
