Got home around noon, after lunch helped dad put down lime for the watermelon field. Watered the remaining lettuce plants and mowed until supper time. Lovely alternating balmy and cool evening breezes. Dad ran the cultivator and drag through the field we had just limed.
Grapes are just starting to bud up their flowers. Should be open in a couple weeks, probably not long after this next rainy spell clears out. Gonna have to spray the apples for scab and coddling moth around then too. Doesn't matter what any one says, when push comes to shove people will buy ten times as many sprayed apples as they will unsprayed. I dare any organics-only person to contradict me.
Will be putting in tomato rows tomorrow and that is an involved process! Hopefully I'll remember to bring my camera along so I can show y'all a pic of our equipment and methods.
Wishing you a playful spring night.
