I am not a writer but I love to blog about gardening things. I am pretty sure you can work around my grammar and enjoy my blogging.
It has been quite some time since I posted last. Keeping busy with work and twitter I suppose.
Mornings in the dome are my favorite, the moisture slowly dripping from the surrounding walls back onto the plants with the sun rising and warming the room back up is just almost magical.
I feed the fish in the tank and watch them sprint around the floating plants on the surface. My dogs are running around outside, chasing the Easter bunnies and quail birds invading their yard.
Gardening does take a little time but that is why most of us like to garden, to pass some time and get some joy from tilling the soil, watching the plants grow, harvesting and surmounting some pest/weed control organically.
We have had some set backs this winter but so far, our efforts have been very rewarding. We harvested a bed of radishes, carrots and beets from this winter. The snap peas are going crazy and we are currently enjoying some broccoli and cauliflower. Our tomatoes are growing again after having lost all but one because of our door incident. The one surviving plant was maimed but has produced fruit. We are still waiting for them to ripen.
We have also germinated some flowers and herbs in the dome. Most of them are companion plants for our vegetables but we have started growing seedlings that we will put outside when frost finally leaves us (that can be mid June for us).
Our Feed the People project is coming along great. I thought we would have more cauliflower but with trial and error behind us, next year’s harvest of those will be better.
Well enjoy the spring and let us know if we can help you get started with your own veggie garden!
