Independence Days Update

I don’t have a lot to update.

You can view Sharon’s update and many others in the comment section here.

Planting – I did finally plant my cilantro babies, and I am letting some go to seed for next year.

cilantro blooms aren’t they pretty? delicate like.

Harvesting – I am still harvesting the same things from last update…OH yeah, I harvested some pitiful excuse called garlic.

I learned something new..don’t plant garlic in the same place next year!

Cook something new and manage reserves -Trying to use up my crabapple jelly from last year I added vinegar to some of it and found out it made a nice salad dressing.

Squash and cucumber are in bloom. Tomatoes and potatoes are getting ready to bloom.

Everything is a little late this year because of the weird weather we had April/May.

Still weeding and watering the gardens and trying to remember to throw stuff on the compost “heap”. I say “heap” because hubby is too covered up right now to build a bin.

Maybe I need to learn some hammer skills?

    We just built a three-sided bin and just throw it in the open end. This makes is easy to turn and keeps it all in a neat little place. I’m pretty lazy about turning it, but just love to dig deep into to bottom and get that “real” dirt every spring.

    hey jancd that is a good way to do it. I probably will be slack turning the stuff too but only time will tell.

    Very cool what you did with the crabapple jelly! Now that’s thinking out of the box :).
