As I mentioned last month, I am on a gardening quest to extend the growing season.
In so doing, I’ve cataloged these extended growing times through observation and failure, have been largely successful overall.
I also mentioned Bambi, amusing in that it was these rampaging ravenous ruminates that forced my winter carrot harvest – probably the last of my phenologic experiments of the prior year. The goal was to dig them up at the beginning of March, at which point I would then plant onions and radishes in the newly-vacant and opened earth, just before the carrots started growing again and converting their sugar. If that were successful, I would have closed the gap entirely on the fallow period.
Still, I was close. I just need to…address the wildlife situation.
And make more stock!
