Busy as a Bee
I've been as busy as this little fellow today.
(Re-)Planted 36 row feet of corn - Bodacious
Planted 4 hills of acorn squash - Tuffy
Planted 20 row feet of lettuce - Red Sails, Buttercrunch, Romaine, Salad Bowl, and Black Seeded Simpson
Planted 20 row feet of carrots - Nantes and Royal Chantenay
Planted 4 row feet of radishes - Cherry Belle
And I did one of the ickiest jobs in the garden: Cleaning off the apple maggot traps. Haven't seen any yet, but I caught a ton of other bugs. Yuck.
Some strawberries. The boys can't wait!
This is what the socks look like on the apples.
My one and only pear. This spring was so cold, even the bumbles didn't wake up in time for the pear blossoms.
And the western half of the veggie garden. In the front bed are potatoes, and off to the left out of the picture are onions. In the back are the tall soup peas (Amplissimo Viktoria) and shorter shelling peas (Early Frosty). In front of the soup peas are cabbages, broccoli and a couple of lettuces.
