Garden Journal: 26 March 2009

We haven't done much with the garden lately except watch it grow and try to get rid of lettuce.

We've had a good bit of rain the last couple of weeks and everything is growing quite well.

The lettuce has produced much more than we ever expected and we simply can't eat it or give it away fast enough. The spinach is not quite as productive but it's still growing pretty well and provides more than enough for salads certainly. But it's about time to try to cook up a batch.

The peas have sprouted and are starting their climb up the tee-pee. The corn and beans are coming along nicely and I'm falling behind on the potatoes—will need to get out there this weekend and raise it up at least 6 inches. Also need to put up cages for the tomatoes before they start to sprawl.
