Um... Er.... Ah.... The ground was frozen by the time I finished putting up the greenhouse, so I haven't cemented it to the ground yet. That's on my list of things to do. I drove posts into the ground, and nailed the greenhouse to the posts. This summer I intend to install a more permanent anchor.

I tilled my fields yesterday, and got serious about planting today. Corn planting day is Thursday. Today I planted seed crops: kohlrabi, beets, turnips, sunflowers. I planted the tomatoes and beans for the frost tolerant trial. They went into the ground a month early.

The favas are flowering. Thanks to whomever sent the crimson-flowered.
