Cabbage, Cauliflower, Broccoli - Oh My!

Yesterday was another very busy and productive day. Dad worked on some equipment issues while I transplanted tomatoes. We are getting closer to planting the tomatoes in the high tunnel. I am thinking Monday or Tuesday of this upcoming week. I want to wait until this weekend cold spree is over. I read this morning that tonight could get down to thirty and after losing some tomatoes with the last cold spell, I want to side on caution. Anyhow, we are a little ahead of schedule on most of the other vegetable crops. I will be seeding more tomatoes today. This will be the last seeding of tomatoes. I also have some peppers to get in today. However, the first project this morning is to water in the cabbage and cauliflower that was planted in the field yesterday. Dad and I planted two 100 foot rows yesterday afternoon. We were kind of thinking it would rain last night and we would not need to water them in. Nonetheless, it did not rain. My wife and I are going out in a few minutes to begin the process. It should not take very long, but it does require two people. Once that is accomplished, as stated, I am going to do some seeding. I am pretty sure that Dad will be working on some equipment again today. I am really pleased to have him helping with some of these equipment issues, as I do not have the time and he is so good at fixing things. Well, it is time to get out and get to work. Yes, I am running a little late this morning. I mentioned a few days ago that I have not been feeling to well. I thought I would sleep a half hour later today, but unfortunately, I still do not feel much better. Hope you have a great day!
