It has been a few weeks since our last update. The craziness of the world interrupted our writing, but not our gardening. One thing is for sure, working on the garden has been a true stress reliever. I hope you have found the same.

We have added three more raised garden boxes to the garden and filled them with a really good topsoil and leaf compost mix. This will probably be it for the raised planter construct for the year but we still have room left to plant in the ground.

We planted 160 sweet onions last week as well as some really interesting purple asparagus. This is a new one for us. Interested to see how it tastes, in two or three years.

The seeds we started indoors have done moderately well. The chard, Chinese cabbage, Indian mustard and Amaranth are looking great. The mache and eggplant are lagging but look promising. The strawberry spinach is still trying to make up their minds if they are going to come up or not. I hope they do as I really wanted to harvest some of this.

We also started a tray of other vegetables including kale, spinach, chives, cilantro, basil and oregano. All of these are doing very well. I think we are still two to three weeks from transplanting any of these seedlings.
