Today was absolutely beautiful!!! It got to a high of about 67 degrees and was bright and sunny. I was out in the garden for a few hours today (and got a bit of a sunburn!). I still am not really seeing sprouts from the stuff that was planted on February 27th, but I was seeing some signs that there may be some soon (unless what I am seeing is possible weeds. lol!!!). I am really hopeful that something may sprout in the next few days since we are going to have some really warm weather.
Today, I got a few more things planted. I really wanted to get them in the ground since rain is in the forecast overnight and the next 10 days are forecasted to be in the 60s and 70s. Today I planted cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, onions, leeks and celery.
I also transplanted the leeks and onions that I started indoors. They probably will not survive, but I figured I would give it a shot. They seemed to be really weak due to the poor indoor light that we have. Most of the starts I am not even bothering with trying to transplant (they are very spindly), but I figured I would try with the onions and leeks. So I did that today. I also planted seeds in the same squares, so
I got my peppers started. I tried to start these indoors a few weeks ago, but now some of them developed this white stuff on the soil that then turned clay color. Not sure what is going on with that but it looks really weird! So I started new plants today and put them in the greenhouse to start. If the weather stays like it is, it should be plenty warm in there for them.
I added a bit of Kelp fertilizer to the leeks, onions, carrots, lettuce, and radishes today, just a bit to try to get them get going. I need to search out some other organic fertilizers, but I need to find the time for it.
I hope you all have a wonderful week in the garden! I know this is not exactly a harvest, but hopefully soon I will have one to show off! :) This post is linked to Harvest Monday (Yeah, a bit of wishful thinking!! lol!!!)
