Log: Spring planting and sowing 2012


Two weeks ago I set out some small tomato and zucchini plants.   I discovered that the tomato plants are already starting to blossom!

As an experiment,  yesterday I re-purposed some old five gallon paint buckets by filling them with potting soil and Miracle-grow and setting out some cukes and yellow squash plants.  In the other buckets, we sowed beets, more squash, turnips and something else I can’t remember.  Oh well, we’ll  see what comes up.   I hope these  do well in the buckets because I just cannot dig another shovelful  of that hard adobe clay.  Ugh!
