How's the garden 2013

That time of year again....Got beans, cukes and zukes started in peat pots. Lettuce, peas, swiss chard and spinach coming up. Planted 6 mater plants in pots trying to avoid blight. Two flats of peppers waiting to go in. I hope this heavy rain and hail they are calling for doesn't hurt the plants! Calling for frost Sunday and Monday night!!!!

Re: How's the garden 2013

I put my garden in on April 29th. Tomatoes, Peppers, Cukes, and Zukes. Tomatoes and Peppers have doubled in size and the Cukes and Zukes just broke ground from seed. I'll be covering them Sunday and Monday night. But I'm off to my earliest start ever.

Got some peas, cauliflower, leaf lettuce, and broccoli that are doing good. Carrots are not. Nothing first planting, about 20% on second planting. Just got the sunflowers out of the ground. Planted tomatoes last weekend, definitely covering for the frost watch. Still waiting to plant green beans.

Re: How's the garden 2013

No garden yet and it's a good thing, we have frost here this morning. Rule of the thumb in Somerset County, don't plant until Memorial weekend.

The horizon is your starting point.

Re: How's the garden 2013

Entire Western PA has frost. Most of PA probably the same if I ventured a guess. Wife had to cover all her flowers. Told her she was way too early with them.

Re: How's the garden 2013

Doing pretty well so far. Harvested some radishes and spring onions yesterday. Beets, carrots, celery, rhubarb, parsnips, peas, brussel sprouts, cabbage, potatoes, and tomatoes are all doing well. The majority of the tomatoes I started have blossoms on already! Can't wait to put in the rest of the stuff!

I'm glad I covered up the damaters last night, kind of a pain though.

Hope nobody's plants got ruined by the frost.

Re: How's the garden 2013

Ya in was going to plant last week but hit the brakes hard over the weekend. Instead I'll be in scramble mode today to cover the blueberry bushes and fruit trees. Planting Wednesday
