Got Orange?
Saturday, April 1 View Page
Not sure if root formation is a good thing this early on the giant rutabaga. These plants have been outside for about 3 weeks. I hope Chris is keeping his cool, so it does bolt and go to seed.

Is it growing season already :) Need to repair the fence surrounding the patch, and replace the cover on the green house. Those 50 mph wind for the entire day did a number on both of them. This year I will be planting a 1200 est Engel 2016 and a 1374 Engel 2014. Going for orange and pretty again.

That should have been doesn't bolt and go to seed. I am sure Chris will figure things out this season.

Soil heating cables are plugged in and 1374 Engel 2014 and 1200est Engel 2016 are soaking. Rutabagas placed in their new location.

Everyone is up. Snow and cold in the forecast for Thursday. Don't trust my new greenhouse. So holding of until Friday to put the plants in the dirt.

1374 Engel and 1200 Est Engel are growing good. New green house keeps the soil at 70 degrees, and the air temp below 90. Spread the rest of the amendments last night and laid down the buckwheat cover crop for the Mycorrhizae to attach to. Soil looks awesome this year.
