Yesterday we finished up planting the early seeds in the garden. While Vince tilled up an area where we’ll plant tomatoes, peppers, eggplant and squash, I planted seeds – collards, brussels sprouts, lettuce, kale and beets.
The garlic doesn’t look much different from how it looked a month ago. I was sure it would have scapes by now. I’m kinda planning my next trip to MO around the garlic and it isn’t cooperating!
We have all the plants we need to plant except for maybe a few more artichokes. I have six in the greenhouse that I started from seeds but I’d like to have at least 10 plants so I’m hoping the plant people get a few more in.
It’s still in the 30’s at night this week. Timing is everything . . everywhere with gardens but here, it will be so hot before long and we need to get things planted and harvested before the dreadful heat moves in.
But, we wait . . because there’s no use planting tender plants while it’s still below 40 at night.
