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.
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.)
Here is a link to my most recent garden pictures. Finally got it tilled and planted the last couple days. Funny thing is I dont have to worry about rabbits eating anything. The dogs are the main garden predator. Before I know it they will be ripping out corn stalks, taking tomatoes, beans and such right of the plant.
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.
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...
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.
