A Little Dibble’l Do Ya

March 31, 2009

My new wooden garden dibble arrived this week, and I’m very excited to get out there and make proper holes for my seeds and plants.

I’m especially excited about the measurement notches. As a notoriously bad guesstimator of measurements, I’m hoping this little tool will prevent unintentional seed entombment.

I’ve nearly completed my list of this year’s crops, and this year I’m considering wheat. Wheat is an exciting development in my plan, and I can’t wait to finish my research and get my hands on some spring wheat for planting. There are some nice spaces on the back of the house that would do very well with a sea of wheat, rather than some dry gravel beds. Given the dramatic rise in food prices, the demand for wheat is at an all-time high. Proof that it helps to subsidize your own food consumption.

    This post reminded me of one of mine, called “Drivel.” Hope you’ll take a look at it!

    I enjoyed reading your blog – very interesting. You sure like to do everything from scratch!
    We had tomatoes my husband plants every year here in NJ, but this year they had a lot of whitish, hard parts on the inside. Did get a couple from the other side of tomato plot that were better.

    Hi Marilyn,

    Thanks for reading. I like your post about your dibble. I certainly drivel on about my dibble; I love it so much!

    Working from scratch is fun, but time consuming. We’ll see how far my ambition takes me!

    Hope you get better tomato fruits before the season comes to a close.
