Finally got around to the compost bin... I built 3 connected bins, each 4ft wide, about 4ft high, and around 3.5ft deep. Re-claimed wooden squares/frames that were attached to the bottom of stoves during transport. Its not pretty but cant beat free Wink.

You should see my compost bin. It looks like a hillbilly construction project.

You have an impressive list of veggies there. I can't wait to see pictures.

Apparently my employer has changed the list of allowed/not allowed websites. The host an image button is no longer an option for me and my dial up at home is to slow. So.. may be awhile before I can provide the pics No.

I checked my garden yesterday and a few of my radishes were pushed up just a tiny bit above the soil. Does that mean pick them or do I need to cover them, or...?

I hope it does not mean its time to harvest because I went ahead and pulled the two that were poking up and to say they were small would be a serious understatement.... First ever harvest from the garden Sad. They were planted Feb. 26 so according to maturity date on the seed pack this is the time to pull them. Should I wait a few more days and hope the rest are bigger or does this maybe indicate a problem?

Give them some more time and maybe see if they need thinning a bit. Mine were pushed way above the soil line when ready. I hate to cut down innocent seedlings, but radish need room for the root to expand. Seed packages are only an approximate time. So much depends on weather.
