Ellie’s Crop Report: May 12, 2011

Ellie the cat looking out the window on raised beds in the backyardEllie saw Mutti and I planting the five Sunchoke/Jerusalem artichoke roots into a tote partially submerged in the ground. We did this to contain the invasive tubers. We also planted some seed potatoes.

Garlic is still coming up nicely. The white and yellow onions are showing signs of life as are the turnips, kohlrabi, and radishes. The volunteer brussel sprout is looking good and will be joined by several others soon. The raspberries, blueberries, sour cherries, and grape-vine are at various stages of leafing out.

Mutti takes out the tomatoes and peppers for brief excursions to get them used to the great outdoors, to the slight envy of our indoor Ellie.
