It was hot but we did it!
Suzanne. The crew on Sunday. The children enjoying the water. Julie & her helpers.
The rain held off, the storms went north and, despite mechanical difficulties (no tiller), we are happy to report that the bok choi, cauliflower and most of the broccoli have moved out of the cold frames into the main garden. Thanks to the ground prep and planting squad of Bob, Mary & Dorothy! Chris, Corina and Suzanne proved that they could withstand the heat by working in the hot house for a long time weeding, installing tomato cages and mulching. Then, thanks to the patience of Sara & Bruce, we have a planting template rope (plants are properly spaced) and the back garden now is irrigated. Julie came over on Thursday and, while watching 3 little ones (one on her back for a substantial period of time) planted carrots, tomatoes, spinach, lettuce, arugula and fennel. Things are moving along. We still need help with planting of the garlic, asparagus, and more seeds. So, if you have some time this week, give me a call and we can talk about when the weather might cooperate with your schedule.
