Victory Garden 2012 Log - May 21

New This Year - Celery

It was "get as much planted before it starts to rain" day this week.  Not wanting to wait another week, we went all out and planted tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, squash, sweet potatoes, pole beans and cucumbers.  No till plot got the same stuff in, also.

No Till Area was Planted, too

Pole Beans Going In

Raised Bed Coming Along Nicely
We also had a short discussion about mulches, various kinds and their advantages.  We will be mulching with 2 layers of newspaper and straw to keep the weeds down, retain moisture, and keep soil pathogens from easily spreading to the plants.
