    Today was a root crop day. Got the Taters, onions, and first crop of radishes in. Got to about 58 today, pretty nice with sun and very little wind.

    Tomatoes and other above ground stuff, Beans, lettace, cucs, peppers, ect will be a little late this year. Frost advisory for morning and then back to normal for a while again.

    Peppers ( 3 varities in sweet and hot) and cabbage is in. Left to plant is cucumbers, beans and maters. If the rain keeps up looks like a good year.

    Garden is done except for the Beans. They go in the 14th. Lookin good so far this year. Taters have started to sprout above the initial 3" of straw. When they are 3" above will add another layer of straw. At least 3 maybe more, depends on how they are looking. Strawberries are loaded.

    Mis read the Almanac and did get the beans in a while back. Peas and Beans are Up. Tomatoes are starting to bloom. Put the second layer of straw on the Taters as they were up about 3" above the first. Eating Green Onions and Radishes.
