Time to transplant

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.
