The garden was going to wait this year while I train for a 7-day stage mountain bike race, but I couldn't bare the thought of not having certain vegetables I grew to depend on each season. This year more than ever, with the high prices of produce, several plants just had to be planted. You saw the 453-onion patch in an earlier post. Today, I planted 72 broccoli plants, mounded up the sweet potato rows for 50 slips coming in a couple weeks, and dug the potato trench for the Red Norland seed potato Donna's neighbors Andre and Diane so kindly shared. Donna and I will split them in the fall. The spinach is coming up and the kale over-wintered and is coming back. I love spring... I wish I was retired!
