April Homestead To Do List

April Showers Bring May Flowers! We have a few flowers blooming right now, and lots and lots of showers. I have been sick, so I am going a bit stir crazy and not much is getting done. I am just itching to get outside and get started on our spring to do list! It is miles and miles long. Here are a few of our pretty blooms right now: Please pop over to our Amazon Shop to see all of our favorite Homesteading and Gardening tools! April Homestead To Do List for Gardening: As always, our to do list is ginormous. Especially in the spring. Let’s start with our little seedlings. I have 8 trays (36 plants each…..gulp) of peppers and tomatoes, that need transplanting, or up potting into larger pots. A lot of those will be sold at the end of the month. But for the ones I am keeping, I have to wash and sanitize 100+ large pots to prepare for their final transplant. The greenhouse also needs a final cleaning before I move everything out there later this month. There is still quite a bit of veggie garden winter clean up to do and a few more kale and broccoli transplants to put in since the rabbits nibbled down the one’s I planted previously. I sprayed the rest with deer and rabbit spray, and they seem to be leaving it alone now. We may also have to replant more peas, at last look, I didn’t see any coming up yet. The fava beans and kohlrabi and some swiss chard I planted by seed has all germinated.  I need to put a bunch of compost down and need to plant my beets and carrots and transplant all my onion starts…
