May Showers

May 15th, 2010 by Joyce

Yes, I know it’s supposed to be “April Showers” but we seem to be having lots of showers in May. Spring veggies are loving it. We’ve had plenty of succulent lettuces. We are now harvesting pak choi, kale, portugese kale, and chard. Next week we’ll add kohlrabi to the list. Peas are blooming. Potatoes and beans are up. Chinese cabbage should be ready in a couple of weeks. I won’t be harvesting any more green garlic but it won’t be long before we have garlic scapes.

The incubator and a few hens have been busy hatching babies, mostly Ancona ducks. The February lambs are weaned and most are already sold. The flock is on pasture rotation trying to keep up with the madly growing forage.

Spring is good, except for having to mow. But I’ve limited that necessity by converting large portions of the yard into garden. And the free ranging chickens keep other areas clipped.
