We’re adding a new category to the blog, a list of what’s happening garden-wise.
This is not necessarily a guide for you to follow.
Even if you are in Zone 5-6, we tend to push the seasons, using cloches and starting things indoors that perhaps should not have been.
There will be mistakes, guaranteed. We’ll post those too.
So here’s what is going on Jones-wise for the 2013 growing season:
Started indoors 2 weeks early on 2/16-
12 sweet peppers
14 hot peppers
40 tomatoes- The first mistake, the plan was actually for 20. Math interferes once again.
24 plants total of eggplants, brussel sprouts, kale, cabbage, cauliflower, celery, broccoli, and mustard.
These were all started early with the intention of using the mini-greenhouse to get them outside sooner.
We’ll see if that works.
At the beginning of February we had planted some budding sweet potatoes in a pot to get the slips going. At the same time a ginger root was planted, something totally new to us.
A few weeks later we noticed we had an assortment of red and white potatoes budding, so into two more pots they went.
Outdoors, a few of the beds were covered in plastic to help melt the snow and get the ground more workable sooner.
This time of year, the sooner the better.
