I am told via internet birdie that a 9 pound package is on my doorstep. I hope not! In fact, I hope Mr. UPS rang the bell of a neighbor, and dropped it inside. These are seed potatoes, my first. Betsy has grown potatoes before, in gardens and sculptures, so I will defer to her experience.

Tomorrow I go back to the patio work, with more hopes of wrapping that up. Then, on Monday I must get out to the farm -I am thinking about it night and day. So much happens between winter and summer, also known as the last three weeks. I seed tomatoes this Sunday. The peppers I seeded last week are up! And just as they did a friend contacted me from New Mexico with a stash of green chile seed to offer. So, I will seed peppers again. And the onions, so many have croaked, but just as many have made it and the warm sun of the last days really perked them up. I reseeded the empty cells, knowing that it is probably too late for large bulbs (day-length sensitive, these onions, and need to size up the plant before they size up the bulb at solstice).

  1. This is great inspiration for those planning to have their own fresh supply of flowers or vegetables in Spring Creek Gardens Brooklyn!


If I do not respond to your comment right away, it is only because I am busy pulling out buckthorn, creeping charlie, and garlic mustard...
