Easter planting - finally

Big time doings in the garden today (Easter).

Finally, after a week of frustration, we had a couple of dry days, which allowed some serious garden work. So here's what happened:

  • The strawberries that John Neal had given me finally got planted in the raised bed box that I made last weekend.

  • Sally planted here lettuce, rhubarb and shallots in the bed at the top of the garden.

  • Sally planted peas in Row 1, which finished most of it out.

  • Jane, Sally and I put yellow corn in Rows 14, 13, and 12. (See picture above.)

  • Sally and I put peanut beans in Rows 10 and 11. Row 9 has been tilled and ready for some horticulture beans.

  • John and I took a thorough look inside the bee hives, and all seems to be well so far. They are busy, making honey and doing what bees should do at this stage.
Friday was rainy, Saturday was cloudy and cool, but today was glorious. Maybe we can get a couple of more days like this in the next week or so to finish the planting.

The pictures below will give you an idea of how the day looked.
