Yesterday, after the maple festival we planted the cabbages and collards in the barn garden. We covered them with these water bottles in the evening and they seemed fine this morning with the temperature in the mid 30’s. I hope that means we hardened them off enough before planting. Now we just need to remember to put these bottles on most evenings and take them off most days, water them, and close the gates so the animals don’t disturb them.
We planted Yukon Gold seed potatoes this evening in the trench to the right. Planting these veggies are a first for us. I hear cabbages can be tricky so we’ll see if we have any beginners luck.
Our morning company.
