Jacy in the greenhouse

Planted 6 rows of sweet corn.

For a total of 75 feet.

40 feet of Ruby Queen and the rest bodacious.

Garden planting has begun

So far I transplated some sweet corn and pumpkin (between the corn rows). I sowed carrots, parsnip, rutabaga, and turnip. Started planting the heirloom potatoes, which will absolutely love the loose clay clod "soil."

Blueberries are already ripening in the greenhouse!

The greenhouse fruit has already set while only two outdoor bushes have flowers.

Jacy is making a trellis for the kiwis

She's lashing together fruit tree prunings to bamboo. We'll hang two of these from the rafters of the greehouse.
