There was just so much to do! Speaking of that. Now that the majority of things are filling out it really does not feel like there will be much work left to do to maintain it all.
Here's to front loading a bunch of work in the down time! .... and Michigan weather allowing me to do just that!
In an earlier posting it was mentioned that a few solanums might have been sacrificed along the way.... If and only if the last of winter depths this evening doesn't put the nail in.... Those decimated two-foot tall (planted the stems deep) polish linguista and Brandywines are going to come back! The baren-lifeless stalks are sprouting leaves. :) Who knew?

|This is the onion bed. It is in here because I find it a gorgeous sight!|
OK. The above photo is the onion bed. A mixture of leek, amposta, stutts (grown from seed), and the jumbo sweets from sets. 9 plants wide and (from a counting inside through the window) 19 long. 171 onions? I'm sure there is around 30 left in a flat in the backyard. What do we need 200 onions for???
side note : Planted the raspberry and blueberry bushes today. ;)
