Last Sunday was finally dry enough to start working in the community garden. Well, not all that dry, really, but I needed to get something started there. With my elaborate plan in mind, I planted some kale, parsley and cilantro from seed, lots of red and yellow onion sets, 12 cabbage plants, 3 cauliflower plants, 6 broccoli plants, and my four artichoke seedlings. While the top few inches of soil was perfect, a deeper dig revealed a lot of water. So I hope that won’t hurt too much. It actually hasn’t rained again since Sunday (but the forecast has at least a chance for the next 10 days…) The forecast also shows that it’s going to be very warm – so I’m going to risk planting the tomatoes, peppers and everything else very soon.
