We finally got to spend a day in the garden. Between the weather, holidays and travelling it has been slow this year. The weather this year has been frightful. The first potatoes went in on Good Friday and we got snow for Easter. Then we had snow or ice every weekend until the end of April. Kathy got two new colonies of bees installed on April 18th. We were worried that it might be too cold for them. We left the next day for New Orleans. Chad was attending and speaking at the American Planning Association conference.
The weather turned gorgeous while we were gone. The last weekend of April we picked up the first of our plants from Barb’s Greenhouse in St. Libory. We got 3 kinds of cabbage, (golden acre, kalibos, and murdoc) and 3 kinds of broccoli (romensco, purple santee, and happy rich). The last two are more sprouting broccoli than heads of broccoli. We also picked up leeks and shallots and a few other random plants.

We started laying out the garden and put in fence for peas and beans and planted the cabbages and peas on Saturday. Kathy also checked on the bees and discovered that while they were doing fine and the Sunday we hope to get the broccoli, leeks and shallots planted. We also have a couple of apricot trees that need to get in the ground.
We do still have 2 full shares available and 4 short season shares if you know anyone that would be interested. Send them to our signup page.
