Hi Ho the Dairy O

Let the planting begin. Today was a bright sunny day. Perfect for working in the garden. Two of the four raised beds are now planted with a wide variety of vegetables. The potatoes remain to be planted. The other two beds are reserved for summer tomatoes and peppers. These will be my salsa beds. Viva! So far, the beds are planted from seed or sets. I'll probably transplant the tomatoes.

One year I started heirloom tomatoes from seed. With tender, loving care they were nurtured into strong and lovely seedlings. The time came to transplant them into the garden. The following day the pill bugs had mowed most of them down to stubs. Devastating. If I can ever find the photo of the carnage, I'll share it here.
