Sunday, 1 Mar 2020We have ordered a reasonable quantity of a reasonable variety of seeds: Asparagus (2), beans (2), Brussels sprouts, carrots, corn (2), cucumber, peas (2), peppers (6), pumpkin, soybean, squash (under duress), tomato (4). I wasn't sure we were going to make it. I'm still not sure we're going to have time to do it.
Tuesday, 26 Nov 2019I had a couple of gallons of RoundUp left from 10 Nov 2019, so I resprayed Plot 1 and Plot 2, then cleaned out the sprayer and put it in the barn for the winter.

We didn't have much time today but we were able to pull all of the tomato cages and clear the tomato plants.
The peppers will stay until the first frost.
If tomorrow's weather permits then I'll RoundUp the entire bed one more time.
One or two of the garlics were disturbed by critters - I don't have any chicken wire to protect them (yet).

Harvested 7.25 pounds of tomatoes but deferred clearing the bed.
