Mastodon Friday —


104 lbs this morning. My goal today is to work my way slowly through another burrito before dinnertime, and then eat some fruit and cheese or a salad or something. Need to ramp up the calories.

Got started on my south-facing deck container garden today! I’m using Gardzen Grow Bags. I have read, on many gardening blogs, that they work much better than pots. I’ve got a lot of ten-gallon ones for smaller veggies and a few 25-gal ones for tomatoes and zucchini. I have some seedlings started indoors to put out when it starts getting warmer, and today I planted spinach seeds and an experimental potato directly outside. For the potato, I cut a very tasty little store-bought organic red one into quarters and planted them in just a few inches of soil. If they come up, I’ll keep heaping more soil around the stalks and hope I end up with a bag of potatoes! My seedlings are cilantro, bell peppers, bush beans, pole beans, peas, about six varieties of tomato, sunflowers, onions, zucchini, and probably some other stuff that I’ve forgotten. I’ll also put some flowers out to attract pollinators. Fingers crossed!
