Building a cold frame for the herb/salad garden today, too. Kid came by and we went to pick up lumber and plastic for the cold frame. Daughters are a blessing.
Got to see some of my grandkids, scored a deal on Hatch chili peppers while shopping, and those are roasted now, and awaiting processing.
Early tobacco sets growing well. Tomatoes are a little leggy, so I'm leaving them outside to chill and backing off on the water.
Jalapenos are in a starter flat and should peek out in a week or so.
Hiring a kid this weekend to finish tilling the main garden.
All in all, it's been a blessed week.
Are you going to freeze them?
Wow. Send some of that sun this way.LOL. Just seeing the sun gives me energy to get up and get some work done. Sounds like you had a good week.
Yep, it’s 68 here. Had a wee little bit of rain a few days ago which really popped up the onion bulbs that were tilled under a couple weeks ago. Of course, they’re everywhere but where they belong but I’m not complaining. The Hatch and other chili pepper seeds never did make but the bells finally came up. Had to restart a couple tomatoes but the others are 6-8” tall. Just to see, most everything is being started inside this year. FYI, to save space, I broke down and bought a way too expensive Burpee 72 starter kit (that was the only thing my podunkville had). Don’t buy it. The pellets don’t expand well so you have to add more starting mix and the self watering cloth doesn’t have enough pulling action to keep the top of the soil wet. The veggies in the recycled cat food containers and newspaper pots are just as happy for zero the cost.
I started cleaning out the new herb bed but threw out my knee (again) and had some pavers fall on my leg so am giving the job to hubby. Next week, maybe he can get to that and I can get back out to measure off the garden again.
