We are moving at full tilt here on the farm, always trying to get more plants in the ground. This spring has been a little unusual in that it is so dry. This has helped us get the tractor out in the field sooner than we thought, so we have been able to prepare a lot of beds for vegetables. The downside of the dryness is that we have to be careful when we transplant, to make sure that the seedlings aren't going to dry out in the wind and sun or have to wait too long for rain.
Sunny, dry days are great for perennial maintenance. We have been doing a plethora of weeding - and it's great to see those first weeds of spring dehydrate in the sun. Our edible flower beds and asparagus patch thank us.
See you Saturday!
