Planting the garden

I'm still waiting to plant my garden due to all of this rain. Some things are in but I wont dare put the peppers or 'mater's in yet. You guys holding off too?

Re: Planting the garden

Most of ours has been in for weeks, the rest just isn't in 'cause we've been busy. Garlic and onions are up, peas, carrots, and lettuce sprouted, Brussels sprouts are looking good and tomatoes are rooting like crazy and starting to take off now that it's getting warm. The eggplant and peppers in the basement under lights really NEED to go in soon, they're getting a little crazy.

Re: Planting the garden

Nothing in yet...I would bury the tiller with all the rain we are getting. Calling for a possible frost tonight.

Re: Planting the garden

hippie I was afraid my tomatoes would get a fungus if I put them in now due to the very wet weather..

You guys think I'd be alright putting them in the next couple days? It seems like we're getting much more rain than not...

I think I have around fifty pepper plants (I get way too carried away when I start my seedlings....) and I'm definitly going to wait for those. (California Wonders, Banana, "Biker Billy" jalapenos, Red Popper's.)

Re: Planting the garden

I've had my tomatoes in for 3 weeks already. They are doing great! no need to water them! They could use some good sunshine tough to really take off.

Re: Planting the garden

I put the onion plants out two days ago on a south facing slope. We had frost in the last week so I'm glad I waited. Pepper plants etc. that I started inside are staying inside for another few weeks.

Re: Planting the garden

I am going to start some zukes, cukes, cabbage, swiss chard and beans this weekend. Peas will go in as soon as it dry's up a bit. I hope this year gets a little dryer or blite will be a problem!
