|The daffidills in the orchard and all of the fruit trees are finished blooming. I'm so sorry I didn't get a picture of that. Beautiful. Time goes by so quickly- I keep thinking "I'll get a picture of that tomorrow", or "I'll get to that tomorrow", and before you know it- it's too late. I'm excited for a good fruit crop this year.
2 weekends ago we planted 100 tomatoes. Last weekend we mulched said tomatoes. With the exception of the purple hull peas for market, the garden is all planted, mulched and irrigated with drip irrigation.
Speaking of irrigation, Dave has been putting my irrigation into the landscaping. Whooo-hooo! If the weather holds, he'll have it finished today or tomorrow- just in time! I'll be a busy bee putting it all together and working on my goal for the year- labeling every single plant. I'm so excited!
The remainder week and a half will be filled with last minute preparations for the plant sale- we still have some tagging to do. I have to put the last minute touches on my dried flower wreaths, and package up my milk soap.
After the plant sale, things slow back down to their normal busy pace. We'll be adding in the calves. Doing all of the prep work for the market, and of course, keeping on top of those weeds!
It was suggested to me that I write a "how I do it" series. Sort of a play by play on how we schedule our days and manage to get stuff done. I'm putting a pole on the side so you can vote on if you'd like to see such a series. Vote, and comment only if you want!
I'll try to add some pictures of the gardens this week!
