The temperature here reached up in the 90’s yesterday, and the weather is to be even hotter today. We spent most of the day doing car repairs (gas leak, flat tire), weeding out, and adding more dirt to the potato plants.
Today, I will be heading back out to finish the potatoes, and start weeding throughout the peas and lettuce. You can see in the photo, in the back, where the weeds are coming up.
Behind the potatoes, are shallots, onions, lettuce and peas. We have not planted our cabbage, kohlrabi, and a few more. We have resorted to buying plants vs. seeds, due to the abundance of rain. We were also very late in starting seeds indoors this year. I did sprinkle flower seeds, and hope to have some color soon, in the flower beds.
