The warm season crops are in!

Today, we transplanted tomatoes, basil, peppers, okra, and eggplants.


Our first planting of sweet corn and beans went in this week, as did our summer squash and cucumbers.  We put in new plantings of sweet corn and green beans every two weeks, to maintain a supply of fresh corn and beans, for as long as possible during the growing season.

Almost every bed here in this picture is now planted and in production.  It’s an area roughly the size of a football field.  Not bad for two people using mostly hand tools!
