Back Forty

Back Forty update

The first harvest was carrots, and they have been eaten. These are mostly baby leeks, probably with a few green garlic bulbs in there. I’m going to chop them up, make cock-a-leekie soup and freeze some of it for stock. They had taken over some prime garden real estate and had to go. I did transplant about two dozen of them into one of the raised beds for this year.

Also planted field peas. I found a bunch of saved Dixie Lee peas – I sure hope that they germinate because I love them the best. And broccoli plants. Sandy planted tomatoes. We weeded and pruned some. It was a good afternoon in the garden.
