Ok, here's the deal. My starts started crazy and already need to go in the ground. Last frost for my area is 4-14-17. Accuweather.com shows no Temps under 42f for my area from here on out. We are expecting massive rain tonight and I've finished the garden structure. The question is, do I plant now and get a little jump on the season but take a small chance on frost, or do I wait and hope the plants live in the current growing conditions for 2 weeks?
Remember the pics of my mini garden starter kit 4 days ago? Im a little shocked. EVERY seed has already germinated and is sprouting like crazy! I will post some pics when I get home from work. I have never had any seed what so ever come up this quickly. The arugula is nearly 2.5 inches this morning before I left just 4 days after seeding lol!
Luckily I got the garden fence completed yesterday. I had been using small stakes and chicken wire so I finally got fencing material and put up a proper garden fence. I also got the first row of earth tilled, compost added and then retilled. I only have a 40V Ryobi tiller so the going is slow. I have to use a spade to break it up, then go back over it with the battery powered tiller so it takes some time. I was actually hoping to have this step completed by now but Ive been dealing with Shingles and havent been moving around to much till this weekend.
Cant wait to post the pics for you guys/gals when I get ho
Compare this to the pic I posted yesterday. My green beans grew 4 inches in one day lol. The only thing that isn't up are the peppers but they usually take longer than everything else to germinate and sprout. They're also the longest time to fruit of everything I have.
Got my seeds started today. Going for leafy greens and legumes with some peppers thrown in this year. Also trying some Swiss Chard which I have never heard of. They look tasty! I just realized they look kind of like stuffed mushrooms lol!
