Well, my garden is doing QUITE well so far. Due to the warm winter and spring we have had I decided to be a little adventurous and plant some things before I am supposed to. I covered them with a row cover and it helped protect them quite nice! Mostly just that I planted my onions SUPER early and I also have planted carrots and beans which I am not supposed to plant for a few more weeks. Oh well 🙂
Here’s a peek underneath one of my floating covers, you can see onion seedlings poking up. They took so long to germinate I’d given up hope, but kept it covered because I planted carrots right next to them and lo & behold, both of them are coming up!
Here’s a picture of my grass-invaded bed, this is where my garlic volunteers are from last year. i think when I planted them in the fall of ’08 some of them just never made it past the thick layer of leaf mulch I had on them because I know I pulled up all the garlic that had come up last year but I have at least three separate plants, and then one of them is technically three plants of it’s own because apparently it had a few cloves last year and each one sprouted.
Anyway that’s it for my garden update so far. My seedlings are doing well in my basement but that’s for a different post. I don’t know how much I will actually be planting in the garden this year, actually, because we might be moving in June. I plan on doing a lot of containers because there are a few types of tomatoes I need to save seed from since I planted my last ones… mostly just the Dad’s Sunset and Tess’ Land Race Currant tomato.
