This week we had a final garden work day to do a little left-over clean up. We cleared the large outside AFAC plot that the County is going to take over and maintain. This involved moving the asparagus I planted going on two springs ago. The small AFAC plot will now be an asparagus bed. Elizabeth and Jonathan dug up the plants, Bonnie finished prepping the small bed, I replanted all the crowns, and Betsy came along and covered it all with a nice layer of compost. Whew!
Mike took some of the rabbit barriers out of the larger AFAC garden so it would look neat, and I weeded in there a bit. It still has turnips, broccoli and cauliflower to be harvested for the Plot Against Hunger. I’m not sure about the kale.
All the help made it possible for me to get to my own garden and finish putting it to bed.
Last week I mentioned that I had put the cold frame in the garden. Doesn’t it look like it leads a life of its own?
The lettuce is thriving in there.
I still have peas, radishes, cauliflower, broccoli, broccoli raab, parsley, arugula, and of course lettuces as well as herbs.
We’ll see how it goes as the weather changes.
I hope you have a lovely week!
