I also ordered 2 more Chandler blueberries from Nourse to be delivered in May. I am removing 2 out of the 5 Patriot blueberry bushes as they are not doing well . I'm glad. We MUCH prefer the Chandlers.
I'm putting in a third bed of Yukon Gold potatoes this year. We can't seem to get enough of those. I used the last of them in February and we've been reduced to buying them at the Organic co-op in Traverse City---an outrageous $1.99 a pound. Yikes!
I'm also trying sweet potatoes from slips grown at home. I don't know how well that will work, but I have the extra space so I feel it's worth a try.
Not shown are peas, which will be grown up the trellises that run down the center aisle.
I'm hoping to get both a spring and fall crop of broccoli in again this year. We ran out of that this winter.
Hopefully this year will be kinder to the cauliflower. Last summer was ungodly hot and it bolted so we didn't have ANY for the freezer. I'm currently paying $3.49 a head for organic at Meijer. Ugh!
We had no winter in December/January. Seems it's giving us all our snow in February/March. I think it's going to be a late start for even the salad fixings.
