Can you believe it?
Looky, looky. If hadn’t seen it with my own eyes I would have second guessed my husband’s comment, “It feels pretty good outside.” The temperature is rising and I was so surprised when I went outside to feed the chickens and rabbits and saw, fifty-five degrees.
I then fed the critters and went on to check my two newest raised bed cold frames.
I have since filled them with some manure, top soil and some sand.
Since this picture below, I now have them filled and covered and hope to plant them soon.
I have 6″ broccoli plants from my windowsill greenhouse project that are ready to plant!
|Built by me, two boxes made for two more cold frames/raised beds.
Ok, Jeff, I hear you. You did cut them to length with your chain saw, but I specified what I wanted.
I put them together. Ok. It was a team effort.
Here’s my goal:St. Patrick’s Day Planting
March 17th, St. Patrick’s day is a mental calendar for me. It is a tradition to plant your potatoes, onions and peas, as well as many other “cole” crops, (proper) but we always say, “cold crops” cause it is still a little chilly and cold, most as a rule. But truly, we have been able to work the ground one day around this date to get some seeds in the ground without fail.
But the fact of the matter is, Spring is right around the corner so pack up those thermal underwear and wash the Carhart coveralls and begin packing them away; well maybe you should wait, like April to be sure to pack the last of them up. You know how the weather here in Ohio can be so unpredictable. Happy Planting! Plant a pot full or a small raised bed in the side yard or a small plot tilled up behind the house………..you know what I mean?
