Too busy to post!

We’ve been putting every hour of daylight as of late into our market garden, which leaves little time for posts on blogs or facebook, but we’re making some time for that now!

The direct seeded crops are coming along nicely, which include peas, radishes, turnips, lettuce mix, arugula, mizuna, carrots, and spinach. Here are some pictures of those growing away:

The strawberry beds look great, and have beautiful white flowers all over the place:

We choose not to spray our crops with chemicals, but that doesn’t mean we leave them completely unprotected.  Here are our cabbage plants growing under floating row cover which keeps the cabbage butterflies and their larvae off our produce:

We put in an entire bed of Bright Lights Swiss Chard, which is as pretty as it is tasty:

In our new field, which we have affectionately nicknamed ‘The Back Forty”, we put in 5 beds of new strawberry plants, 2 beds of potatoes, two beds of lettuce, and one bed of parsley.  Our original market garden is completely full already, so all the new plantings will go in the new field.

The tomato, pepper and eggplant seedlings are growing great inside:

Last night, we made the final push of our spring seed starting.  Acorn squash, yellow squash, delicate squash, zucchini, honeydew, watermelon, and cucumbers were all seeded last night and will be ready for transplanting around June 1st.
