The vegetable garden is off to a great start

Basil, Peas, loose leaf lettuces, cucumbers and some ball cabbage transplanted

April rolled in and we’ve got plants in the beds. Of the stuff we planted back in March, here’s what went in the ground this weekend:

  • Oregon Sugar Pod Peas
  • Genovese Basil (pesto)
  • Danish Ball Head Cabbage
  • Loose Leaf Lettuce Mix
  • National Pickling Cucumber

The tomatoes broccoli and cauliflower aren’t ready to go quite yet, but hopefully they will be in a week or so. It’s warm and there’s no rain in sight (at least for the next 10 days), so I went ahead and planted bush beans, straight neck summer squash, a zucchini called cash flow, and some early sweet corn.

New pole bean trellis is up and ready

While we were down there cleaning and preparing the vegetable garden I went ahead and repaired the bean trellis, which was crushed by luffa gourd vines last fall, and planted several varieties of pole beans including Forex, Kentucky Blue and Rattlesnake.

I’m just a guy with nearly an acre of dirt, a nice little mid-century ranch house and a near-perfect climate. But in my mind I’m a landscaper survivalist craftsman chef naturalist with a barbeque the size of a VW and my own cable TV show. I like to write about the stuff I build, grow and see here at Sage's Acre.
