On the home stretch to planting day

Hello fellow gardeners

I hope you've all been having a nice spring so far.

I've been busy, in my own lazy sort of way.

My raised beds are built and the square foot grids are in place.  

I'm using a mixture of potting soil, black earth, sheep manure, vermiculite and peat moss in the boxes. Basically I'm using whatever I've found laying around the farm plus a little extra I bought. 

There are still a couple of odds and ends to do. I want to build some trellises for my cucumbers, do some weeding and that sort of thing, but that's all gravy. 

All I really have to do now is wait for June 10, which is the first day they say it's safe to plant outside when all risk of frost is gone.

You can plant earlier than that if you really want to, but you have to always be worrying about frost and such.  I decided it wasn’t worth the hassle.

My plants are doing great in the greenhouses. Mom and I transplanted several hundreds little seedlings about a week ago and I did more this past weekend, June 1.

I’ve booked a week off starting around June 13, so here’s hoping for a nice stretch of weather.

Happy gardening!
