Now, what was I going to tell you about before all Nine Hells broke loose?
Ah, yes…the things that are up-and-coming in the gardens, beginning with the peas. Though this was taken a week ago, they haven’t gotten much bigger since. The cold temps have slowed them down, but they’re coming along even better than I’d hoped. We won’t be eating peas for Easter Dinner, but I’ll lay odds that there’ll be at least one meal’s worth by the end of April!
I managed to get one of the Big Projects started last week; the Mushroom Bed.
It was easy once I had all the pieces to play with. One Bale of Straw plus One Box of Mushroom Spawn in Sawdust…
Plus a bed full of compost and organic debris, all mixed together equals a mushroom bed. We hope.
Why not? Cardboard composts….and maybe there were more spores stuck to it. Wouldn’t want to lose a single molecule!
We got all but one of the five main beds cleaned out, and planted Spring Mix lettuces, spinach, radishes, and arugula. Angel helped plant the seeds. No photos – my hands were otherwise engaged.
She loved it, and keeps asking when we can Do More…
She must be going through her Blue Period right now. Maybe the next batch will be red.
I wish I had just one-tenth her energy…
