I have tomatoes, peppers, squash plants in the ground.
Seeds for radishes and onions also hit the dirt.
lettuce plants were transplanted along side collard greens.
The dirt is something beautiful to behold, a mix of sand, clay, compost and chicken manure.
The raised boxes are about 12 to 18 inches deep and made from recycled deck boards.
Now I am going out to add some spinach seeds, way late anywhere else, but
I am only a little behind here in the mountains where the season starts mid-May and we could be frozen stiff by late September ( need greenhouse, BAD!)
I have yet to make the water distribution system so I am watering by hand.
Saturday afternoon was the big Ride the Mountain event with Harley's and their riders swarming all over the ski area parking lot. What a crowd, what leather, what tattoos! We stayed for 15 minutes and then went for lunch somewhere quiet. The County Sheriff cars were lined up and quite busy..... lots of revenue to our town from all these bikers. Plenty of noise, too.
I am watching mom much more carefully as she is starting to make more perception/judgement errors. Nothing dangerous yet but curious and leading me to want to better understand this disease ( Alzheimer's) and its stages. Do any of you know of good sources of information?
