Today we finally transplanted the Swiss Chard from the flat in the greenhouse into the garden.  These had to be planted about five inches apart and about 1 inch deep.  We also topped off a couple more beds with soil and made sure these beds were fully tilled.  Before we plant crops in the bed, we want to make sure the soil is not packed down and that last year's nutrient-deficient soil is fully mixed with this year's nutrient-rich soil.  We also are continuing to transplant more tomato plants from their flats into the cowpots; in addition, these plants have to be watered with fish emulsion immediately after they are transplanted so that they will not die.  Finally, seeing as the irrigation system cannot be set up yet, we still have to manually water all of the outdoor plants
