Busy Spring Planting

These have been busy days in the garden. First, I kicked out the non-productive plants. Next, I have been eating fresh produce daily: broccoli, carrots, cauliflower, and lettuce. Then, as the rows were emptied, I started refurbishing the rows and planting the little upstarts. I have two rows of Roma tomatoes, 2 rows of Celebrity tomatoes, 2 rows of jalapeƱos, 2 rows of cucumbers, 2 rows of yellow squash, two rows of green beans, 2 spots with 2 melons each. I have more melons, jalapenos, cucumbers, the eggplants, and a few more celebrity tomatoes to plant. I have lots of seeds and plans for whatever vacant rows I can find. VERY BUSY!  It takes me several hours to turn the row, add compost, add fertilizers, get out the clumps, shape the row and then finally plant. The work is enjoyable, the weather has been beautiful. With no rain and just a few misty mornings, I may have to start a watering schedule.
