Meanwhile, out in the fields ...
On Saturday Dad started plowing, yesterday he ran the cultimulcher over it, and today he planted the first rows of corn--Seneca Arrowhead, which is nothing fantastic, but it's quick growing. Since the corn was planted before April 26 (my grandmother's birthday) it will be ready in time for Aunt Laurie's birthday in mid-July, as long as the weather cooperates. Over the weekend he also got the cub running again to help loosen the last section of plastic we need to get up. Back in the greenhouse, he's still working on transplanting the last of the tomatoes. On Friday mom planted basil seeds: lemon basil, lime basil, purple basil, cinnamon basil, Thai basil, and regular old Italian basil.
