Today was a beautiful day. In the 70’s and just right for working out in the garden.
Yesterday I got an unexpected day off. Had a couple of friends stop by and we had a good visit. The rest of the day was spent with kids and doing some running around with them.
So today, I started work first thing. After I did some laundry, of course. Started planting onions at 8:15. I took some pictures of how I build my onion beds but haven’t figured out yet how to get them from the phone to here yet so will have to do a separate post with those. After I had a bed of onions planted I started planting strawberries and carrots in the “Bucket Garden.” Planted 25 Jewel and 25 Honeoye June Bearing Strawberry plants. In those same bags I also planted carrots with a total of 168 pelleted carrot seeds from the bucket garden website.
Went back to the main garden and built a double bed for yet more onions. Got it about 3/4 built and planted. All told over 1000 onion starts went in today. I still have about 800 more to get in. Would have finished out the bed but had to run and pick up my daughter. All told 9 hours were spent enjoying this beautiful day and getting lots of garden stuff done.
Now my wonderful daughter is cooking me up a yummy steak obtained from Eric Rubel’s pasture fed beef. It smells really good so…have to go!
