Getting Things Done

It has been nice to have these extra days to get things done. 

I mended some row cover...Hey what can I say?  I'm a poor farmer!  I have to save money!

Connie potted up the second set of tomato starts for Penny out at Garden Ventures...

Carolyn transplanted the last of the leeks...

I got the pots prepped for the zucchini to be transplanted into once they sprout...

Every third one has a potato planted in it.

It has been cold and rainy, but I try to grow things that love this climate, so most everything looks great!


Trout lilies...

The sun even came out and cooked my back a few times.  It is supposed to really get nasty outside, so I wanted to work outside while it was nice.   Tomorrow is a boat day...time to get ready for the next trip!
