Day 100 of 365

Clear before sunrise,
beautiful almost full moon.
Then the sky turned gray.
  • Low: 50
  • High: 75
Started to rain after evening chores. We only got a sprinkle.

  • cucumbers, Straight 8 (Shumway's)
  • radishes, Pink Beauty (Sustainable Seed Co)
  • sorghum, Mennonite, (Baker Creek)
  • popcorn, Japanese Hull-less (Shumway's)
  • 2 hybrid tomato plants
The cukes are a new variety for me. I planted them in the 3rd pea bed, thinking I'd like to try growing cukes with a trellis. The radish seeds are leftover from last year and were a freebie. The tomato plants are for green tomatoes to can for frying. (Not worried about saving seed from these).

  • parsnips

Coming Up:
  • potatoes
  • Jerusalem artichokes
  • sugar beets
  • Red Detroit beets
  • Swiss chard (I think)
  • flax? or else there's an awful lot of something coming up in that bed!

Found 5 eggs stashed behind the hay feeder. 

And somebody took a big bite out of my almost ripe strawberry!!!! I dug out a row cover and covered the bed with that. There are a lot of green berries so here's hoping for a good harvest. 

  • milk kefir
  • water kefir (soda)
  • goat cheese
  • sourdough bread
  • goat milk
  • lettuce
