Well, I think the warm weather just might be around for good.
This weekend temperatures reached well into the upper 70s and it actually felt hot outside while I was working in the yard...Not the nice yummy spring warmth I'm used to, but an almost uncomfortable heat that reminded me to stock up on sunscreen this spring!
|The clear bags are gallon sized... |
4 bags of chard & 2 bags of kale...
with all the air pressed out of them.
The 2 bags in the back are actual grocery bags
filled to the brim with lettuce.
After pulling all the greens, I cleaned up the new holes in the beds a bit and actually sowed a few rows of corn. It might still be too early, but I thought it was worth a shot...especially if the weather woman is right and we're done with freezes :-) Time will tell! I also planted some bush beans (trio and black) and some soybeans around the bases of our fruit trees, which is new, so we'll see how that goes this year, too!
- Chard = 5 lbs 13 oz
- Kale = 3 lbs 7 oz
- Lettuce 3 lbs 12 oz
- Eggs = 34
