Busy Little Bees

Not the bees… us. Although I’m sure they, too, are busy.

We caulked the back door. Made terrible jokes.

The Husband worked on the fence while I worked on the asparagus plot.

Of course we have surveying tools.

I tidied up the front landscaping and prepped the farm stand for the weekend.

Then came the seeding.

I started so many seeds!

Green is rollover seeds from prior years. After a couple of years I combine them all and sometimes they are just various.

  • 1 Cherokee Purple
  • 3 Striped German
  • 2 Brandywine
  • 1 Amish paste
  • 9 Brussel Sprouts
  • 13 various Broccoli
  • 12 Waltham Broccoli
  • 25 Marketmore Cucumbers
  • 25 Chicago Pickling Cucumbers
  • 4 various Eggplant
  • 11 various Pickling Cucumbers
  • 8 Aswad Eggplant
  • 8 Dr. Wyche Yellow Tomatillos
  • 8 Verde Tomatillos
  • 8 Dr Wyche Yellow Tomatoes
  • 8 Yellow Pear Tomatoes
  • 25 Black Cherry Tomatoes
  • 25 Poblanos
  • 25 Empties (probably jalapeños-soon).

Sheet pans are so useful. My setup is a grow light on cowpots in sheet pans (6 for $11 at the chicken auction, go me!) on warmers. That way you can just pour water in the pans and see when it is all soaked up.

Yes, that is the incubator-waiting just under one month on that.

I cleaned and organized some of the rest of the mud room. It’s a lovely size. We have one wall of shelving, a freezer, a work table, and a desk. I’ll move my candle and other wax craft stuff in there tomorrow and start some seeds outdoors.

Im betting that we have one or two freezes left, but I can cover if need be. Which probably means we will have a prolonged winter and snow in May.
