It’s *nearly* warm enough to start moving potted items into the garden. It’s *nearly* warm enough to go down to Natural Gardener and peruse the tomato plant selection and purchase another 1/2 yard of turkey compost. I’m thinking one more week (if I can wait that long.) It will be 70 gorgeous degrees today. Husband helped put in the main watering hose system. I’ll add feeders as I plant. This is my favorite time of year–the bugs haven’t destroyed my dreams, the soil is fresh and promising and little plants are poking up through the dirt. (The beans are up and so are the potatoes. NO, I don’t have room for potatoes, but they had eyes in the pantry and so many eyes that I had to toss them out there…). I hope I get a lot of beans. And tomatoes. And spinach and parsley and beets and snap peas and arugula!!!

  1. At this point, I don’t think you could stop the arugula if you tried.

  3. Happy bees make a happy garden!

    Potatoes? A new one. Make sure it is in an elevated spot, if the water is allowed to hang out they’ll rot, even if you have a light hand with the water. They’re like sponges.

  4. My whole garden is a raised bed so the drainage is good. I wonder where I’m going to put the cucumbers. They were going to be where the potatoes are…

  5. Should have known you’d have thought of that already.

    You’ll find a spot for the cukes, I just know it. And whatever else you end up picking up at the garden store.

  6. I’ve checked. Despite adding two rows this year…these things are not fitting! I may have to expand an additional row. Of course that would mean room for the cucs and the zucs. Could I possibly put in another tomato plant??? No. No, probably not.
