2011 garden progress

Many seeds have been sprouted, and many of those have been transplanted into the garden. We tried to follow the system defined in John Jeavons' book, "How To Grow More Vegetables", but our unheated greenhouse probably set us back. Many of the initial seeds never germinated, so timings for transplanting got a bit messed up. Nonetheless, we have stuff in the ground, taking hold, and promising to feed us in the near future. At this point, we have the following in the ground:

Bush Peas
Pole Peas
Daikon Radishes (bolted)
Radishes
Anise
Mustard Greens
Rhubarb
Strawberries
Asparagus
Collard Greens
Broccoli
Cauliflower
Sweet Corn (3 varieties)
Tomatoes
Potatoes
Romanesco
Okra
Winter Squash
Acorn Squash
Spaghetti Squash
Nest Egg Gourd

Standing by to be transplanted:

Bok Choi
Kohlrabi
Rutabega
Beets (2 varieties)
Carrots (3 varieties)
Peppers
Cantaloupe


We said goodbye to Sunshine the stray yesterday, leaving her in the care of a group of volunteers who send puppies to places where people need them. It was fun to have her around for 2 weeks, but it is good to be back to normal in the house again. A puppy needs extra care, and the 2 dogs we already have are enough for me as it is.

This is Render,

















and this is Noodles.

Meet Sunshine!

this is a picture of the dog that Kelly found on our doorstep on thursday morning. no... we're not keeping her but if you know someone who wants a dog please let me know. we got her pretty much potty trained but she's going to need shots and worming and spaying.
