Garden Update

It has been raining for a few days then this happened yesterday…

SNOW!

Today was a beautiful day. So I finally got some more stuff done in the garden.

FENCE:

In the rain and cold my honey helped me put the chicken wire fence up. It’s almost done. Waiting for some stakes to come in on Wednesday.

PLANTS:

Sage

Sage grew a lot!

Strawberries

I cleaned up the strawberries. For the most part they did pretty good in the cold. Some leaves were hurt but I picked them off.

Chard

Same with the chard. I removed all the damaged leaves from the cold.

GROUND COVER:

Since I got the fence up I was able to lay down the rest of the straw. This will help the large and vine plants that grow to the ground stay cleaner and dryer.

STRAW BALE CONDITIONING:

Unfortunately because of the rain and cold I have done nothing with the bales. I did give them a good watering today but that’s it. ☹️  The bales seem to be staying 60 degrees inside. That’s good considering our night temps have been 28-30 degrees, day temps 40’s.

Tomorrow I start work again. Won’t be able to play in the garden until Thursday. Bummer.

MASON JAR HERB GARDEN:

I did put together my mason jar herb garden today.

 

Rosemary, Spearmint, Lemon Balm, Cilantro, Basil, Thyme, Oregano

 

Parsley, Sage, Dill, Chives

INDOOR STARTS:

Are looking good! Started tomatoes today.

Until next time – Happy Gardening!
