Well I will start by acknowledging it is Super Bowl Sunday…aka “Thank God Football is over Day”. My husband has been battling a bout of bronchitis so he was watching the game in his PJs by himself; poor guy.
I decided to make him some game food (aka junk food); and then I headed out to the garden.
I really haven’t had a lot of time for my garden so far this year. I’ve been harvesting a bit and I did plant the potatoes. But I haven’t done much else. So I evaluated the boxes a bit and decided to work a bit on box 1.
It needed a little pruning, all of which was added to my compost bin. I harvested some Swiss Chard, kale and the last few
carrots in that box. Then I was able to replant 2 boxes with green onions, added about 3 – 4 seeds in the boxes where none grew and I replanted the carrot boxes with some baby Bok Choy. The two Brussels sprout plants have taken off and I am eagerly awaiting the first veggies!!!
Then I got my first really big harvest of spinach. Out of Box 3 & 4. I was hoping to replant some boxes in those but I lost my light. Hopefully I will get out later this week. AND check out my surprise cabbage – I’m getting a beautiful head on the first one!
I love being a backyard farmer! I am also so proud to be a coordinator for the Backyard Homesteading Conference. If you haven’t checked this out than I highly recommend you go over and give it a look. Some of the most awesome teacher/mentors in Arizona!
