This week has been busy. We have had a cold, windy spring that has delayed some planting, so I feel like I am playing catch up.
I planted potatoes: Mountain Rose, Sanguine, and Katahdin. I still have my favorite Purple Viking coming in the mail this week.
I also made bread to go with the strawberry rhubarb jam I made the other day. And finally I made some yogurt with my goat milk.
In the garden, I have direct seeded: peas, spinach, Swiss chard, carrots, beets, Asian greens, kohlrabi, pac choi, Chinese cabbage, green onions, pickling onions, and radishes.
The orchard has been fertilized and I will apply the first spray. I think only the cherries and pears have not frozen. Watch for aphids aphids this time of year and spray before the leaves start curling too badly.
I love this time of year. I enjoy planning and planting and then comes the harvests.
