End of May Report

I can't believe we're not out of May and it's already hit the 70's.  Not only that but things are really starting to green up.

You can see I've added cat excluder devices to most of my beds.  I love my cats, but they like to dig and poop.

 Lettuce mix, chard, kale, and spinach.
 French breakfast radishes.  First round up and the second round just sprouted.
 Peas and carrots
 The raspberry bramble is greening up nice and I've seen some flower buds already too.
 The front beds are all cabbage.

 Since my potato boxes all have scab I decided to just use them all for zuchs and other squash.
 More beans.
 The cuchs are in.
 Basil in a hanging pot
As well as cilantro and not picutred, thyme and mint.

Gearing up for the 2015 season

It's been awhile. But then not much has been happening on the farm.  We had a fairly mild winter by Alaska standards and so far we've had a very warm, dry spring.  It's still getting too cold at night to plant outside, but I've already got my peas in and up and starting to harden off our starts.

I've also cleaned up the greenhouse and readied all my pots, I've amended all my beds, and I think I'm just waiting for the night time temps to stay above 50 or so.

This also means clearing out the freezer, by smoking up the rest of last years fish and working my way through the rest of the put up veggies.  

Stay tuned for more fun.
