Planting continues

As of today, I have yellow onions, broccoli, parsley, peas and spinach out in the garden, and tomatoes, peppers and basil under the lights. Cauliflower and first round of lettuce is now hardening and will go out today or tomorrow. So far so good.

I do have a squirrel that seems to like digging around in my beds. He doesn't seem interested in the plants themselves, he's just digging holes. But I'm worried that some plants will get damaged in the process. I haven't actually seen him so I'm not sure how exactly he's getting in. I'll have to keep a closer eye on the situation.

I also may have found a source for free, composted horse manure, already bagged. This will go a long way to reduce my overall costs.

Ramping up

As of today, I have onions and peas out in the garden. Parsley is hardening now and will go out tomorrow.

Inside, I have lettuce, broccoli, cauliflower, basil, bell peppers and jalapenos started.

Got another few bags of wood chips for between the boxes, but other than that, all major projects are done. I'll get some new photos up once there's more stuff to take pictures of out there.
