Time to plant broccoli

 

 

If you have some broccoli seedlings maturing inside today is the day to set them free.

Broccoli is one of our biggest producers thanks to Anna’s careful planning and our new caterpillar protection method which blocks that seemingly harmless moth from making you nourish her young at the expense of beautiful broccoli plants.

Agribon fabric protection

Another advantage to using a planter box is how easy it is to cover delicate plants in hopes of surviving a dip down to 20 degrees.

I made a rectangle the size we needed and attached just one layer of Agribon fabric. The literature says only use one layer for optimum results.

We are hoping this new method in the planter box will help the Snow Peas make it to our table a little faster than last year.

Shopping cart for firewood transport and storage

We upgraded from a firewood tote carrier to this Wellmax shopping cart with wheels last year.

Now we can carry twice the amount with less effort.

The side spokes mostly popped out but weaving some steel wire or thin rope is an easy way to fix it.

Once inside it provides a tidy way of storing the wood.

Anna lifts from the top while I push from the bottom to make it even easier and safer.
