How exactly does that work(qm)
Do you dig up long necks when they are ripe or just pick them like corn(qm)

I have found the biggest threat to my garden plans is Chantal. ::)
My cat thinks my seedlings are her personal salad bar.   
She almost wiped out all of the broccoli.  She tried taking out the kale too.

Cats ate the catnip seedlings.  ::)   

I'm just about to start harvesting spinach and the lamb's quarters that came up with it.  The grow boxes are working great!

I tried cat nip last year and I had every cat on the block in my backyard howling for two days till they devoured it all.  I didn't even try to plant it this year.

I was very happy to see my lettuce seedlings didn't die with the light snow last Friday.  The romaine lettuce and the radishes have sprouted.  I should see the spinach, peas and beets soon.

I just received my onion sets and garlic.  I know garlic should be planted in the fall but I am trying it anyway.  I found a variety that should do well being planted in the spring.  I planted it this afternoon along with the first batch of carrots.   

Tomorrow I will plant the raised bed that I put the row covers on.  I made the bed into a little hoop house out of pex tubing and clear plastic sheeting.  I have been warming up the soil and I am going to attempt to plant the bed a month early and see what happens.  I will have to open it up during the day since the temperatures have been over 90 degrees during the day.  I bought a soil tester to help monitor the soil moisture.   I love the raised beds.  This year is so much less work than last year.

I want to plant the broccoli and kale.  I need to wait till they get a few more leaves since the cat ate them.   I just hope we don't get solid rain till July this year.  Last year was awful.  I didn't even get a single zucchini from the garden.

It's just awesome what Russell did.  The rock and log-end walls really do hold the heat in.  Even though it's freezing outside at night, the greenhouse hasn't fallen below 40 degrees in ... I don't know... maybe a month and a half?  All my plants are doing great in there.
