Since several of you have expressed interest in my veggie garden, I thought I’d provide a little update. As always, click on any shot to blow it up.
The garlic, planted in November, is growing well – I’m experimenting with 4 varieties.
I planted an entire row (about 150) of a large white sweet onion that we love, called Superstar, which we get from Dixondale Farms. They were planted as dormant slips but will start putting on new growth soon.
I’m a pretty fair vegetable gardener and actually teach it to new Master Gardeners, but I’m just adequate in the greenhouse. If I were to teach a class, it would likely be titled “Do As I Say Not As I Do,” but I’m normally successful in spite of the rules I break. Most plants are okay with being transplanted, some (like cukes, squash, etc) really don’t like it, but tomatoes love it, if done correctly. This means planting them much deeper than they were, so they develop new roots along all of the stem that has been buried. Here’s a before and after for mine - note how much less is above the pot.
Then look what they've done in just three days. I adjusted the greenhouse vents to try and cool the greenhouse down more and I have the fan blowing on them a few hours a day - both of which will help them be stalkier. The ones in the background flat are now also ready to transplant - except the eggplants on the right.
Welcome new followers and thanks for reading my ramblings.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.
