2008 Garden Updates
Well, a bit early yet but here we go again!
Last Fall's Carrots are still out there doing well with in-ground storage. Probably about 100 of them left now. Will be picking the over the next few weeks before they go beyond their peak and start to get woody. Will leave a few to bloom in Spring to attract beneficial insects.
Sept Planted Spinach is doing well too for a Spring harvest. I hope to start picking this by mid-March unless there's a late Spring ahead.
90% of next season's seeds have been purchased, finished compost piles are now covered in plastic awaiting Spring.
Presently in process of mulching the strawberry beds with pine needles.
Will get to pruning back the fruit trees soon.
Meanwhile I'm digging out as much Bermuda grass as possible from the beds that are still infested. A good time now since it's dormant.
