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?

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.

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

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.)

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.

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.

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!

I've been able to till once, but I want to go over it one more time. However, we haven't had more than 2 consecutive non rain days in weeks. As soon as everything has a chance to dry a little, I'll be planting.

Your garden is looking good. No chance to till here in 2D. Wish it would stop raining for a couple days so I can get the snap peas in.

I tilled my garden back in March those couple nice days we had. I planted my carrots and garlic today (way too late for the garlic) but it was donated by somebody and I had to save it. I'm debating putting beets in before I go to camp but I think I have no option. I did put four test peppers in, two are doing well..

The other two,

I lifted the fence to hang it on the posts to mow around the garden and forgot to put it back down (heavy thunderstorm) so a rabbit or something must have went in there and ate all the leaves off of two. The plants in the basement still are doing great I'm just hoping to get decent weather to finish hardening them off!

Also I'm on another forum for gardening and it's crazy because most of the people on there are from down South. Their growing season is like double what ours is. I don't stand much chance in the "biggest veggie" contests...

Want to triple our garden's size this year with food costs spiking.

Are there any veggies that are safe to plant outside a fence that won't get eaten by deer and rabbits that could be a problem?? Funds will be low to fence the new part for a while.
Thx

We are supposed to have sunny days until wednesday of next week, except for a little rain tonight and slight chance on sunday for some. Will be some great growing weather. I have not been able to find any pickling cucumber plants at SKH for a couple weeks. \

I really want to expand but I also have a nice 10 plant asparagus bed over in my dads garden that is doing really well. I will have to pick a couple handfuls tonight.
