Plastic Mulch is in. Last year was our first experience with it so we knew what we were prepared for and planned accordingly. Apparently our car and the weather didn’t get the memo. After car trouble and almost a week of straight rain we were finally able to complete it yesterday only about a week late. So now our crazy planting week–which is actually Proeun’s week off from his regular work is almost over. The corn, bush beans, soybeans, broccoli, cauliflower, tomatoes and peppers are all in. the plastic mulch is complete and waiting for melons and pumpkins. We have some trellising to do and some direct seeding yet to do–really the work is never completely over–but today is the day we stretch our back and rest. Well at least for a little bit.
Soon it will be out to the greenhouse for more seeding, mowing our crazy lawn that has been all but neglected for the last couple of weeks and get caught up on things around the house. But it does feel good to have it done. We went to Rice Palace to build up our strength after all that work and as a special treat for the children. They were real troopers this whole week!.
So I will be back on Monday. Have a great weekend.
