First pic is the tomatoes. Phil planted them last night for us! We stake our tomatoes, which still needs done. We have 2 super sweet 100 plants (loved them last year), 2 romas (I plan on caging them since they are determinate), one indego rose cherry tomato...they are purple on top and red on bottom, one lemon boy (Charlotte chose this one!), one Juliet (roma/cherry tomato mix), a better boy, a big boy.
We planted 6 pepper plants, hot banana, gypsy, cubanelle, mild jalapeno, sweet banana, and cowhorn. We took out spinach, of the 15 "holes" we planted, we only had 4 plants and they werent't thriving, and put peppers in. The cowhorn was an "oops" buy but we decided to plant it, its supposed to be spicy!
I am always amazed at how much growth can happen. The bed with the sugar snaps was planted entirely by seed. Everything came up and is doing well!
In the last bed, we planted one zucchini: black beauty, and 2 pickling cucumbers...boston pickling. Both transplants from Home Depot. In the middle, I planted some Bush Green Bean plants! They should be done before squash and cukes are ripe!
What are we doing next? Well its been a slow year getting started since we have to dig the beds since this is our first year here. We cant use a tiller because its too rocky. We are also manually removing all of the grass from the top. In future years we want to remove grass between plots (maybe put rocks in) as well as fence it. We would love to plant more cucumbers, green beans, black beans, corn, yellow squash, sweet potatoes (their own bed) and watermelon this year. We hope to make more beds soon!
Phil made another bed today and we bought some plants from Home Depot today. Can't wait to get them planted, will post pictures once it's done! Will also post a garden pic soon, it's rainy and yucky out now!
Seedlings failed! It was entirely our fault though. They were nice and healthy, but we didn't have a chance to make garden plots so they got too big for their little seed starter thing and died. Only changes for next year...start peppers earlier, they are very slow!
Harvested radishes today. Took longer than expected.
Harvested some salad greens today. Spinach did badly. Only 3 plants came up from seeds, they were very small and slow growing, and starting to bolt. I started them in the ground. I pulled them up and added the few leaves they had to the salad greens. Need to try to start seeds indoors next time and transplant.
Kale is doing nicely, pulled a few leaves from the plants for baby kale in the salad greens.
Salad greens are all doing well. I thinned mesculin mix today too!
Also thinned carrots, a bit late, no real carrots but leaves are doing nicely.
