Busy times…

Whew… I’ve been keeping pretty busy lately. When I’m not working in the garden, I’m working up in Clarkson, Neb., at Wild Plums with the well-respected horticulturalist Harlan Hamernik, and we’ve been busy lately. I’m in the process of building the website for him, but soon I’ll be back out in the field picking up new bits of info from the master…

As far as my garden goes, it goes well. The zucchini is just taking off, and I think we’ll have a bumper crop this year. The green beans are plumping, and we should have the first crop come in this week. The second crop of kohlrabi is almost ready, and the tomatoes are another week off. They had a slow start this year.

I spent the better part of the day waging the ongoing war against grass, and my rototiller and I made progress. I laid down a few hundred feet of landscape cloth, and I think that should take care of further weed supression. Or at least limit its ability to sneak up on me and gain ground.
