I don't plant the early stuff but I got all my herbs planted. I lost my Rosemary and thyme to the hard winter after years of them coming back so I replaced them along with some more chives and flat leaf parsley. I also ripped out a ten year old Sage bush that had just gotten to big and out of control where it was and put in a new one in a different spot. Tomatoes, peppers cucumbers, and eggplant will go in shortly.
When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!
My asparagus is coming up pretty good at this point. cutting a heaping handful every 2 days. From the looks of the forecast I'll have to start cutting twice a day next week. Once those temps get into the 50's at night.....look out. Grows faster then I can keep up with it.
Trying something new this year and started sweet corn and tomatos indoors. Corn is just sprouting and the tomatos are about a foot tall right now. Just trying to get to pickin a little earlier then August this year.
The rest of the garden I think I'll put in sometime around the 17th I'd say. The way this year is shaping up it really doesn't look like we're going to get a late frost down here in the Valley. Just a hunch.
All my fruit trees are all nearly blossomed out and the Blueberries are just starting to get the bumble bees on them right now. Spring is slowly happening..........
Its funny cause while some stuff is playing catchup my rasp and black berries are JUST starting to leaf out and not even close to flowering. Everything is all straggered up this year.
Aspargus is a pain in the bum where I live! As usual the asparagus beetles are all over it already keep me busy killing them but I get the added bonus this year of mice nibbling on the fresh shoots and the stalks of growing plants and cause then to 'shepard hook' real bad. That's a first!! I set about 6 traps with peanut butter in there last night so hopefully I see some death when I get home from work tonight. I swear to god that every pest on earth is out of control in my area. It's a thriving ecosystem of varmints!
