While the rain continues to rat-a-tat-tat against my windows, I've been busy gardening.
Okay, my gardening doesn't require dirt quite yet, but in my mind and on paper, it's a beautiful garden.
And it doesn't care that the rain continues on.
The sun may not come out tomorrow, but when it does, I'll be ready.
Here's a list of what's going in the veggie garden this year~
Green Beans~Old Homestead (Kentucky Wonder Pole)
Blue Lake Bush
Cabbage~Glory of Enkhuizen (kraut cabbage)
Cucumbers~Parisian Pickling (for sweet pickles)
pickling cukes (to be determined)
Kohlrabi~Early Purple Vienna
Kale~Blue Curled Scotch
Amish Deer Tongue
Black Seeded Simpson
Onions~Tokyo Long-White Bunching
Bianca Di Maggio
Walla Walla Sweets
Snap/Snow Peas~Mammoth Melting Sugar
Spinach~Bloomsdale Long Standing
Summer Squash~Marina di Chioggia
Squash/Pumpkins~Butternut Rogosa Violina "Gioia"
Acorn (to be determined)
Sugar Pie Pumpkins
Swiss Chard~Five Color Silverbeet
Turnips~Ideal Purple Top Milan
And just in case Summer decides to drag it's feet, we're busy prepping for Plan B.
A 24' x 14' hoophouse on the south-facing side of our home.
Which will also double as a clothesline when Winter drags it's feet!
Not that any of us Pacific Northwester's would know anything about that...☺
