Sunday last week saw the sowing of corn and baby bush lima beans into rows.
The nursery has several varieties of tomatoes sprouting along with Anaheim peppers.
All the imported tree seedlings are doing well.
Aljay has mixed the first 12-15 cubic feet of compost, combining saw dust with animal manures.
The goal will be to end up with four compost piles that can help us add around a cubic yard of compost a month to our gardens.
We have planted Marigolds Asters and Zinnias.
The Dahlia bulbs, along with Cannas and Callas are all breaking through.
In the nexrt couple of weeks we are getting a delivery of 8 cubic meters of 8-14" river rock to begin shaping our gardenss
Two years from now, CocoBeach farm will not be recognizable.
