Garden Notes

Picked up 4 straw bales and some potash. Spread potash over potatoes, onions, and carrots. Mulched around tomatoes and peppers with straw. pH not budging from the 6.0 range in the potato bed despite continuous addition of sulfur. 2 or 3 straw bales will be planted for squash or melons in the dog kennel next weekend, row cover not keeping bugs off of muskmelon seedlings. Cukes setting flowers; cukes & eggplants under cloches much larger than those without. Spinach growing at a snails pace. Leeks transplanted out. Something seems to be eating carrot seedlings- slugs?
