2/21/2021 – Began the spring gardening with snow peas, onions, and carrots.
- Pulled up the bolting cilantro, Chinese lettuce that did not grow a head, and bok choy that has become rubbery.
- Tilled all the empty areas.
- Spread compost from our bin on the row along the fence and tilled it in.
- Moved the Warrior Bunching Onions and the Red Onions (grown from sets) from the Big Garden to Mary’s Garden to allow the south half to be plowed and prepared for corn in March. Particularly the reds had small white roundish spots on the leaves. Appears to be botrytis so sprayed all onions moved and those that were already there (including the leeks) with Mancozeb.
- Sowed Oregon Giant Dwarf Snow Pea along the fence. This is our first time for this variety that is to have 3 ft. vines that resist common wilt, mosaic virus, powdery mildew.
- Sowed Scarlett Nante Carrots that have been in the refrigerator for the past two weeks as recommended by Travis at HOSS.
The basil, marigolds, zinnias, and cilantro between the future spinach and the future basil shown above will be planted in late March or April.
