2017 Harvest

Busy 24/7

The beginning of a gardening season is always the busiest time of the year. With all the sowing and planting there is an issue with fixing the damage winter left behind.
Luckily this year we had a nice and warm beginning of March so all the work was done on time.
I managed to finish all the orchard work. Pruning was finished in a week and a half and raking and cleaning fallen branches were done this week.


I've also managed to do all the garden sowing. Peas ( American wonder and Villo) were sown this Tuesday and carrots, onions and lettuce were sown on Wednesday.

The only problem with this weeks sowing is the fact that we desperately need some rain. The soil is extremely dry for this time of the year.

Before winter I left some covered lettuce and carrots that were too small to be harvested. I covered them with agrotextile but I was a bit skeptical with the result of the covering, mainly because we had a very cold winter.
But still, most of my lettuce and the carrots survived.

 I'll leave the lettuce another 14 days and then I will have to harvest it to plant potatoes and carrots will be harvested until May when it will be the time to transplant peppers.
