in the garden

The garden, where we are focusing much of our attention these days. And the combination of warm temperatures and a good, much-needed rain this week have sparked the growing, so much so one would swear they can hear the plants grow. It still seems magical to me, I confess. 🙂

We are ahead of last year’s planting schedule, yet it always seems like there is still so much to do, as new plots are added, including one just for new varieties of heirloom tomatoes we’ve started this season. I am struggling with the young eggplants, as I have done every year, but I am keeping optimistic. The coming days will be spent transplanting peppers we raised from seed — fish, Chinese five-color, Jimmy Nardello sweet Italian, canary, Etuida, bullnose — and planting the next round of salad greens and radishes. And with any luck, much of the planting will be wrapped up in the next week or so, giving us a little breather before the chicks (!!) arrive. 🙂
