I really screwed up with the cover crop. I found some other person's blog and they turned over their cover crop like in Feb when the plants were wee. Tomorrow I dig the last of it in, but I mean--it's going to take forever for it to decompose down there. I'll see how much compost I can put on top of everything. Such. A. Bad. Idea.
OTOH--my soil is rich and dark and I imagine if we are still here next year, I'll have really made a difference.
Just checked on the squash and melon starts. Some of it has popped up. Some of it is still dormant. I'm a little worried my seed is bad. I believe the cucumber is up and the zucchini. I think the basil is still dormant.
Still fighting the biggest garden pest--the dog. While I don't really wish we owned this particular house, I wish I owned something to feel comfortable putting in a real fence to keep him out. He's slowly decimating the carrots.
I'm going to buy the summer plant starts next weekend. I gotta figure out how to carry all the tomatoes and peppers. I need a wagon. Seriously.
In other news, husband turns 40 in a couple of weeks and Imma rock his face off with fun. I am the most awesome wife ever. No lie.
May is turning out to be one exciting weekend after another. Can't wait!
