This is the beginning of our fifth garden together and it is kicking ass.
We started tomatoes indoors sometime in early to mid February and the plants we put in the ground a week ago were over a foot and a half tall. They were actually getting to be a bit unruly, so next year we may wait a little longer before we start the seeds.
The lettuce and arugula are rockin'. We don't have a cold frame (yet), so we started some seeds indoors. When our indoor seedlings were about an inch or two tall, we planted them outside with some onion starts. About a week after, we direct seeded more lettuce in between rows of peas. We're eating off the first batch and the second set will be ready in no time.
Also thriving in our front and back gardens are:
- hot peppers (four varieties)
- sweet peppers
- potatoes (three varieties)
- soup beans
- bush beans
- summer squash
- garlic (it's almost scape time)
- oregano (or marjoram, we're not sure)
- wine berries (thanks Kate and Tom)
- lemon balm (thanks again Kate and Tom)
- oodles of flowers
There's a whole bunch of other crazy shit goin' on that we can't wait to share, so hang tight.
Oh yeah, it has come to our attention that blogger is not allowing everyone to leave comments. I don't know what's wrong, so please know that it's them, not us :)
