Transplanting Scallions

I have been waiting all this cool, wet spring for my soil to dry out, and last week it finally did. The neighbor who discs up my field was able to come over last Wednesday, and Thursday I was out transplanting and seeding, compressing most of the spring’s fieldwork into a few days. As of last night, when I set out my leeks while the sun was setting, I was all caught up: potatoes, scallions, lettuce, celery, celeriac, another round of greens and carrots, even the first round of green beans. This is a great relief to me. Now I move forward into the summer crops. I should be transplanting peppers and eggplants this week, and tomatoes and squash the next. I can’t tell you how good it feels to be moving forward.
