I’m not lazy. . . I’m just a wimp!
I’ve been meaning to work in my garden for over a week-I need to plant my onions and spinach, plus set out my irrigation and trellis. It’s not that I’m lazy, but it’s been COLD outside! It seems like it snows every other week, and I don’t want to lose all my hard work. And honestly, I hate the cold.
Fortunately, Monday was a beautiful day and I was able to get out and get it done!
For some reason I get scatterbrained when I plant, so I set these all out, then pushed each one into the soil, smoothed it out and watered well.
I also planted spinach. In his book, Mel recommends planting 9 per square, but the package suggested spacing them 1″ apart. I poked all my holes first, then planted two seeds in each hole.
Last but not least, I set up my trellis and irrigation. Last year I had the trellis against the fence, but that makes it difficult to train the plants up the trellis and to harvest. So this year I turned them the other way.
