January Harvest Tally
201 lbs Produce
Eggs: 73 Duck 14 Chicken
The mild winter has really confused plants and humans alike. Trees are blooming a might early (the bees are busy easy!) and the colder weather crops are going to seed faster. Plus, 'tis the perfect temperature for aphids. Boy, they are lovin' it under the row covers. The Army of Aphids was camped out underneath the row covers; but, now since we are having a mild "winter" , we can take the covers off.
The warm, dry winter weather has let us do a bit of garden improvements. We fixed up one of the fence lines that had gotten away from us, added a few new raised beds, redesigned the front yard, built a new trellis and planter boxes (using recycled materials). Even after 25 years, there is always room for improvements to be made as we learn to grow along with the garden and every year presents new challenges. Weather, especially!
In a few weeks, time to start those summer crops!
Perennial herbs & fruit trees pruned and ready for spring! Wildflower seeds sowed in the parkway and tucked in empty spaces in the garden to attract butterflies and beneficial insects.
We are going to kick off the 2012 growing season by giving away Vegetable Chart each month this whole year! Each time we post our monthly Harvest Tally we'll be giving away this handy chart answers the following:
When is my local frost date?
Vegetable Growing & Planting Times?
Indoor Planting Times for seed flats?
Seed Planting Times & Quantity?
Plants - When to purchase and plant?
How deep do they plant, and how far apart?
