Signs of Life

Here is one of the new signs that we are placing on all of the main beds, along with some of the first sprouts this year.  We’ve been having a beautifully warm spring and so far we’ve got turnips, mustard greens, beets, shelling peas, and snap peas all showing their first leaves after sowing the seeds a couple weeks ago.  The broccoli, cabbage, and kale that we started indoors as transplants in March will be ready to go into the garden this weekend, along with a couple bunches of onion starters we got from a greenhouse.

Tomatoes, peppers, okra, basil and other herbs were just recently started indoors and are doing well.  We also started over eighty Little Bluegrass, which is one of the predominant native prairie grasses, and will use them along with native flowers to create landscaped berms.

  1. I would also like to find out where you got your mix from. I have raised beds built which will need 3 cubic yards of compost/topsoil or straight compost. I do not have an alley or drive so I need to find out if I can get this delivered to my tree lawn for immediate shoveling LOL. Can anyone suggest a source and tell me whether or not the City of Milwaukee allow soil to be temporarily piled on the strip between the street and the sidewalk? My tree lawn is fifteen feet wide so there is plenty of room there. Thanks for the help.
