Things are growing

Around here on the homestead, things are starting to grow pretty good with all the warmer weather. The plant stuff that is. Rob and Amoys baby is growing too and sure knows how to get sympathy and treats. That little cast can get Abby most anything she wants including bologna for breakfast.

The strawberries are blooming and it looks promising for some strawberries this year. We have also planted 100 more strawberry plants in the garden as well.

All the stuff we have planted in the big garden so far looks really good, crooked rows and all. The peas are starting to run, the onions look healthy, cabbage and broccoli are looking great and I will likely be canning mustard and turnip greens in a couple weeks.

The pot containing tomato plants need to be transplanted to the bed in the back yard just for early tomatoes to eat. The rest of the tomatoes are going to be quite large before its time to transplant them to the big garden. The other cabbage will get transplanted tomorrow into the garden.

The acre that is to be planted in corn for cornmeal got disc up good today and will get planted tomorrow. Hope this gives us enough corn for cornmeal and to feed chickens as well. Not much else going on here. So till next time, blessings from the McGuire homestead.
