The other evening while I was working I looked up to see Ken had opened hoopettes in anticipation of the coming rain.
And he had begun transplanting. After raking the soil, he uses a hand triangle cultivator to make depressions for the seedling transplants. That art major really helps - he does this so evenly without any measuring.
Then he separates the transplants, places them in their new home, waters them in and then covers with soil. And here experience helps - he can do several trays in a really short time.
They don't look like much now, but these are future celery plants
Spring is always busy, and when it arrives late it is a really busy time. It is also full of promise and optimism. Here are radishes and beets popping up and soon carrots will pop up, too.
