Do you remember a few weeks ago we planted the first (ever!) plants on the land? Well now all the Spring vegetables are planted!
A week after the first vegetables went into the ground, the broccoli, cauliflower, bok choy and potatoes were planted. None of it went stress free through. We are still getting used to our new Upstate growing calendar (much colder than NYC, especially at nights) and with that comes a little heart break. The weather said we were in the clear at nights, but after everything was planted we had 2 sudden days below freezing which sadly killed a few of the plants. Thankfully we covered the seedlings up with row cover fabric adding in a extra 4-8 degrees protecting most of them. Although I don’t want to lose any plants, I’d rather lose 10 than lose 200, so I guess we lucked out as a few other people in town didn’t fair as well.
So now… let’s check out the rest of the plants that will complete the Spring season!
And now the bok choy. How many bok choy plants does one woman need? I’m glad you asked. 94 plants!
And some more pictures to share….
We’ll be heading back to the land this weekend to get the rest of the beds prepared for the next batch of plants. It won’t be long until the tomatoes and peppers are planted!
Have a good weekend everyone!
