Transplants and Footprints

I stand here in the field with our recently transplanted melons. I can't help but feel a surge of optimism. Everything so far has gone off without a hitch, unlike the drama of last weeks onion planting. The transplants are looking happy and healthy. The beds are smooth, fluffy, and oh so flat. It really is a beautiful thing. And best of all, not a weed to be found. Yeah, let's see how long that lasts!

Well, I'm off to check out our over-wintered onions. They're doing great so we should have a pretty good crop. I know many of you are looking forward to our Bermuda onions. We're targeting Memorial Day, or thereabouts, for our first harvest. We'll see what Mother Nature allows.
