The colder spring (complete with several April snowstorms) means we are running behind our usual schedule.
The good news is that the soil has finally warmed enough for crops like asparagus, garlic, lettuce, peas, carrots and beets to sprout seemly oblivious of the late date on the calendar.
We had our soil tested, and it was found low in both phosphorus and potassium as well as a few micro-nutrients. Bill and his walking tractor are doing their best to correct that as they rekindle their relationship while incorporating the needed amendments.
Onions, lettuce, chard, and kale have been transplanted with spinach, broccoli, and some herbs planned to go out by the weekend. Inside the greenhouse we are constantly monitoring flats of tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, summer squash, etc. to keep them watered and warm enough. It feels reminiscent of the old days listening to a baby monitor as Bill carries a remote sensor for the greenhouse everywhere he goes!
