The veggies are planted- well most of them, anyway! We've had lovely weather for the past few days and I have taken advantage of it by spending most of my time playing in the dirt. I've been really disappointed with my seeding this year- for some reason several things didn't germinate well at all, and of the ones that did germinate, they died shortly thereafer. I have no idea what went wrong, since I used the same method that's been successful in past years, and the tomatoes did do very well, but everything else was a disappointment- although a few of the Slim Jim eggplants look pretty good, but none of the white fingers eggplants came up. So yesterday we drove to Julian's Hardware in Sylvan Springs and bought Swiss chard, some pepper plants and a few other odds and ends, including a bale of ProMix.Yesterday and today I've planted bush beans, set out the chard, tomatoes (three varieties), peppers, eggplant. a squash (again- I never learn- this is probably yet another sacrifice to the squash vine borer gods). Only one squash, though- an heirloom zucchini. I also set out some thyme, Greek oregano, purple basil, sweet basil, dill, and weeded the earthbox filled with weeds, sage and chives. Now all three little square foot beds are planted and I've used up almost all my containers.
We brought all the plants out of the greenhouse today, which also involved weeding some pots, repotting some plants and some doing drastic pruning on the lemon verbena, pineapple sage and some of the tropical ornamentals. I'm hoping to finish up with the potting and repotting tomorrow and getting the deck all straightened and spiffed up. Mr. G used the pressure washer on some sections of deck that had gotten nasty looking over the winter- primarily from the leaves that have fallen, leaving stains and debris.
Maybe tomorrow I'll have some pics to post, but tonight I am happily exhausted and about to turn in for the night.
