You'd never know it was stormy yesterday! It was a perfect sunny day today.
I refilled my wind damaged boxes. The wind took a significant amount of Mel's Mix out of several squares... and about an inch or so off the top off each of my 3 boxes.
My goal this year is to can: peas, green beans, corn, tomato sauce.
Whole 4x4 box...
So today I replanted some of my Wando Peas that were blown away.
Planted a whole 4x4 box with bush beans.
In my box that's mostly spring crops (lettuce, spinach, arugula), I planted Cukes on the north side where my trellis will go (still need to get supplies for that!).
Because of the extreme winds that come by not so often... and the hail storm that usually comes late May... I'm going to make dome tops for protection over the next few weeks. Until then, I have covered my 3 planted boxes... just because...
Also, EG, I took your advice and watered my beds really really good today. Thanks. I'm sure that I wouldn't have lost as much soil if I had given it more water.
