them hilled up nicely and mulched heavily with straw . I'm seeing a few
beans sprouting (blue lake bush) and the bunching onions are mostly up
now . The tomatoes got the cardboard then straw mulch treatment , trying
to prevent soil splashing on them to help prevent blight problems . And
yesterday I saw some of the beets have come up too . It's been a cool
wet spring , I feel like I'm behind - but I'm not really , summer's here
are pretty long and I won't worry about frost until early October .

Yes , I'm old

Get outta my woods !

Our garden is doing well but we've had too much rain here in Maryland to get out and weed properly. The front lawn is getting near the point where I can bale it for the sheep to eat next winter.
