FARMING WEEK # 2 - Day 3
Monday, May 23
Fed the chickens
Consulted with Karen about rhubarb and moonflowers
CSA email and blog post (this took a long time!)
Arranged a trade for an apartment sized frig - Yay!
Called Community Action about an electrical savings program.
Set up 15 teepees and planted pole beans - Rattlesnake, Goldmarie, Green Annellino, Annellino Giallo, Garden of Eden, Gold of Bacau, Kentucky Blue, Stortino, Northeaster, Neckergold, Kentucky Wonder and Kentucky Wonder Yellow Wax
Set out Tithonia plants
Planted the strawberry tower with Honeyoye strawberries.
(I am interested in learning more about growing fruit under cover. I got this strawberry tower a few years ago from Raintree Nursery. I tried it out but didn't water it regularly enough. Trying again this year. For more information, see All Season Fruit Company)
Hemming and hawing about what to plant next to the pole beans - cow peas? soybeans? cukes?
Looked for upcoming crops. Picked the first little radish!
Knitting, old BBC Sherlock Holmes, sleeping in the armchair
