The majority of our garden is now planted – even though we are still a couple of days away from the traditional “frost date” for our region. Some of the hardier crops – peas, onions, cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage and potatoes – have been in the ground for a few weeks. This weekend we planted all our tomato seedlings… meaning all 120+ of them. Except for the tomatoes, all other seedlings are planted in plastic-covered rows.
We simply ran out of time to also plant our peppers and basil seedlings Next weekend we’ll finish it up with cucumbers, melon,s pumpkins and zucchini. Then once the peas are harvested, we’ll sow green beans and winter vegies, like rutabagas, turnips, winter squash and red beets.
