Radishes and more in DDC Garden

26 May 2008

Another row of radishes were planted since the first row will be harvested within the week. The potatoes were side-dressed with 12-12-12 fertilizer. Yeah for the strawberries as they are showing many blooms. The spinach is near harvesting for baby spinach – next weekend. We have had below normal temperatures for the past several weeks. Onions are a foot high and looking good!

The field corn around us is several inches high already.

Carrots Planted in DDC Garden

23 May 2008

I decided to plant carrots, lots of them. Last year they grew pretty well. Fortunately it was not windy. The carrot seeds are so small it is hard to plant one at a time. I tap them out of the package.

Also, the onions were finished planting. I hope to get pictures up soon. The potatoes are doing well. The corn is poking its head through along with the zucchini and cucumbers.
