I had the day off last Friday and the weather was great, so I got the rest of the seeds planted in the gardens. This morning, 6 days later, we’ve got germination in a few areas! I made just a few indoor seed starters last weekend, and they’re all sprouting too. In fact, the one bean plant I started indoors shot up several inches practically over night, so I put it in the ground a few days ago. It’s doing great!
I am using a combination of square foot gardening, container gardening, and also a few traditional rows. Here’s what has been planted:
4 sweet peppers
1 cucumber bush (not vine)
1 tomato plant (“sweet snack hybrid”)
a row of green onions – maybe 15-20 or so?
6 hot peppers (I think jalapeno)
6 sugar pumpkins
1 tomato (roma)
1 cucumber bush
Salsa garden: 1 roma tomato, 1 hot pepper from a pouch of mixed pepper seeds, a few cilantro, about 10 green onion, and an accidental basil got in there too.
Herbs: In one pot, there’s rosemary, thyme, cilantro, and basil. In another pot, there’s curly parsley, chives, and marjoram.
Peppers: I have two big planters with 3-4 peppers in each (poblano, anaheim, jalapeno, and one accidental “New Mexico Big Jim.”)
1 pot of spinach, which we’ve been eating steadily
1 pot of radishes, which have gorgeous, huge leaves but the radishes themselves are pretty puny still.
3 new hanging baskets of red geraniums. $10 each at Walmart. What can I say? I don’t do flowers. (Yet…maybe someday).
