All the gardens are now planted out except for the remaining tobacco. Early spring crops will be coming out in the next week or two and will be replanted with summer things. The first corn planted is a couple foot tall and many of the tomato plants have fruit as do the squashes. Everything else is slowly poking through the soil. My favorite time in the gardens is coming: when things grow enough overnight after a good rain to notice a difference in everything and things become a beautiful mess.
The hot tub is again full with wood and leaves using a bit of the soil we made in the hugulkultur experiment. In a few years we will have another tub of nice soil to use around the place but have a fine growing spot in the mean time.
