*Finally* got some stuff into the ground.
We've had an entertaining spring in western Ohio. We went from
"chance of frost" to "heat advisory" in the span of 3 week. (I may
exhagerate, just a bit.)
That, along with my procrastination in getting the pre-planting
mulch done, has made for some "must do" focus points.
But the (seeded early March) tomatoes are in the ground. As are
seeds for 3 types of cucumbers, 2 pole beans (Blue Lake and black
dried), watermelon and another experimental melon.
More to come, some in pots, but I haven't hauled enough mulch yet.
What with weather, grand-kid sports, and hips/heart that are out
of warantee, I've slacked more than I would like.
But a good-ish start.
I've been canning pasta sauce for (I think) 7 years now. I'm hoping
(as is my wife) that I get beans canned this year. And there is
the (she doesn't know) goal of beats and spinach.
