We also re-planted spinach seed where there are bare spots and mowed part of the lawn. A second batch of peas is rolled up in moist paper towels on top of the refrigerator to sprout and be planted before St. Patrick's Day. This is a busy weekend for the garden, since it's also time to sow seeds of tomatoes and dill indoors. Broccoli will be transplanted out into the garden by next weekend, so it's time to start hardening off our seedlings by acclimating them to sunlight and wind after being pampered under fluorescent lights on a heat mat indoors.
Bees are loving our bush cherries, and the first peach blossoms have opened. We finished a very busy day by watering our blueberries with an acid-loving fertilizer and by misting all the newly-planted seed. Thanks to all this work on a sunny day, we can humbly show off our red necks!
