Time to plant. Time to harvest.
That is exactly what I did. I missed 2 workouts last week, but Sunday morning I got up and went to Power Pump. Tonight, sore and tired, I headed to Bootcamp. I pushed myself - jumped higher, used heavier weight and kept trying to do just one more. Since I did yoga on Saturday, I am feeling like that crummy 'ole wagon got caught in a nasty windstorm, but never actually fell over and crushed me.
I harvested a lot of carrots yesterday. They were in the taller raised bed, and took a long time to mature. I realize it was because the soil is too dense, but that won't be fixed for another few months. I put in more carrots and turnips, so we should get 2 more good harvests before the spring garden goes into the ground. I have swiss chard ready to harvest, as well as more broccoli, lettuce and spinach and some beets and lettuce. Annnnd, we got our seed starting operation started - an $8.00 5 tier shelf from Craigslist, a $3 fluorescent light (with a grow bulb already in it!) from the flea market and left over pots and trays. I only seeded one flat, because we need more lights, but got 3 tomatoes, 9 peppers and 6 cucumbers started. WAHOO!!!
My potatoes are finally starting to come up! This is a stock image, but mine is just about the same size. I keep digging up one to see how they are coming along. I know, I know... But, if they aren't I need to start again! Potatoes are not very difficult to grow, and I am excited about the yield we might get!
