The weather was perfect today to get some crops in the ground.
7 days ago I cut my Yukon Gold potatoes in half and let them harden off.
I dug a pretty trench and laid each special spud out using my special grazers measuring stick.
I covered the trench and planted a few marigolds to keep the potato bugs away.
I then took a little road trip to my local farmer who had lots of started veggies and flowers available in her green house. I succumbed to the colors and the aromas. I even got some started sweet corn.
I have lots of started plants too, but I thought I would get a few that I did not have.
Celery, Brussels sprouts and Banana peppers will be my experimental crops this year in my main garden.
In my hillside garden I have already planted Banana squash and Banana melons. More experiments.
Its a Banana year.
Before the sun set on this fine Vermont day, I put in some head lettuce, romaine and black seeded lettuce too.
My garden frog approves of all of my choices.
Four brussel sprouts went in near the chives and then I cleaned up my mess and came in and took a long shower.
I love working in good soil, with healthy plants and cool winds.
What have you planted this weekend?
