Windy days have dried the ground up at our place. It seemed like it would never be dry enough to work, but a couple days of 12 to 15 mph wind changed all that. And
Bill has been mowing, tilling, and cultivating like crazy!
We spent Memorial Day weekend transplanting tomatoes, spinach, broccoli, cauliflower, kohlrabi, and squash. It felt good to get more plants out of their tiny pots and into the big gardens where they can grow and grow! We also moved flats of cucumbers and peppers to a semi-protected spot (away from chickens!) to acclimate to life outside the greenhouse.
While the wind made conditions less wet, it presented its own challenges. It tried to suck moisture out of the tender seedlings as it buffeted them about. We did our best to counteract the wind's effects by securely placing the plants in their new homes and then watered them in. We'll continue to give them extra care the next few days until they start to take off.
I hope you have a great week,
