a high of 86.

We knew it would be hot today, so we started as early as possible to try to beat the heat. The morning was absolutely perfect – cloudy, light breeze, perfect temperature. We were able to get a ton done – four no till beds, mulched the asparagus, weeded the other raised beds, cleared the fence lines, mowed, etc.

Tomorrow the plan is to plant squash, watermelon, muskmelon, and cucumbers. I plan to do about 4 squash plants – 2 each of the honeynut and 898 squash. The Crimson Sweet watermelon has a forever place in our garden, but I did get some Borries Yellow seeds for this season.

I’m extremely pleased with the garden so far. I’m going to have to do a little bit of tilling this year – I don’t have enough compost to make more beds and I have definitely spent enough on the homestead this year. Hopefully by next year I can finish out the no till transition.
