Catching Up

huge chard

We are so far behind in posts that it's ridiculous. Not only did we miss the March Can Jam due to double illnesses and traveling to SXSW to work a guitar show, we've also failed to blog about 1) digging the mounded raised beds, 2) literal tons of free mulch shoveled into the back of the truck, 3) sifting said mulch into large pieces for garden paths and particulate for the compost, 4) making our own fertilizer, 5) soil test results (not so good), 6) the planting out of peas, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, chard, lettuce, collards and kale seedlings, 7) a trip to The Natural Gardener in Austin (pictured above), 8) sweet peas sprouting up, 9) the fact that it's already spring!, 10) the purchasing of many, many more seeds by me to Mason's chagrin, 11) an aquaponics course at Urban Harvest, 12) new tools from the swap meet, 13) the potting up of over 100 tomato plants, 14) worm casting harvesting at Urban Harvest, 15) the planting of potatoes in hay, 16) several more rounds of seeds started in the rope light hot beds...and I'm sure that there are more bits and happenings that I'm forgetting.

Things haven't slowed down any at all (quite the opposite, actually), but we are both feeling better and have sworn to ourselves to keep this blog more up to date.
