Brassica Focus

Good morning! 

It's the last week of May and it's still feeling pretty cool around here. I was outside earlier and the grass around the house was frosted. It looks like we're going to be in the 60s most of the week with temps in the 30s at night. Brrr, I'm ready for a warm up! 

We have been focusing on brassicas most of the week and are going to finish transplanting them today. Woohoo! So many less starts to take care of on a daily basis, yes! I love this time of the year, when everything moves outside and makes it's way into the soil. The red and green cabbages, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower and kohlrabi have been transplanted. Today we're wrapping up with broccoli, kale and collards. My legs will be happy when we're done transplanting, so many squats... 

The greenhouses are looking good! I spent Saturday morning weeding the new house and it looks awesome without thistle popping up everywhere. Grow maters grow! We have had some vole issues though... they'e eating/destroying peppers and cherry tomatoes along with some of the early beds outside. Little stinkers! They're driving me crazy. 

We have been watching this sweet little nest of kill deer eggs in the onion block for weeks! Mike noticed them when we were preparing beds and worked around them. We have been checking on them off and on and last weekend they hatched and now there are four adorable, teeny tiny kill deer babies running around. Super cute.

Two weeks until harvest time!
