How does your garden grow??

April 28th, 2009 at 01:45 pm

I hope better than mine!!

DD3 and I excitedly planted our seeds and watch them grow into healthy little seedlings. But the weather would'nt cooperate and the seedlings grew, bigger and scrawnier each day. Freeze after freeze, we had to keep then in the house. So when dh transferred them, well.... lets just say, we won't have a bumper crop!

So more seedlings are growing away busily and hopefully we can transplant them very quickly! I am really looking forward to fresh veggies from the garden, and a fat jack o lantern to carve in the fall!

    Good luck! It's a challenge when the weather won't cooperate!

    With silver bells and cockle shells, of course. Smile
    Seedlings just moved from the house around here would have been dessicated by the wind we've had lately.

    I direct seeded cabbages, kohlrabi, 2 lettuces, radishes and snow peas between March 22 & 24. They were so slow I thought the cabbages and kohlrabi in particular were not going to sprout at all. The radishes have taken these 5 weeks to be harvestable. They normally need only 3 weeks. Onions planted from sets are looking better. Met an Italian former farmer who explained to me which onions to plant for which purposes in MO, so I have higher hopes for my onions this my second year of growing them. Wanted to plant carrots on Sunday, but the strong wind would've blown away that fine seed.

    Rose pruning done weeks ago, viburnum hedge bloomed out is soon to be clipped. Much weeding to be done everywhere. Five tiny columnar apples planted in rocky soil.

    The perennial herbs are looking great and getting cut already. Strawberries & gooseberries are abloom, apples leafing out, agastache for tea tasting good, violet flowers being dropped into salads, ornamentals beginning to cover their beds, new flowers popping up every few days.

    umm, sunflowers are knee high to a 3 year old? Everything else is at least sprouting something green.

    But that is it...course I never expect much when I plant.

    Well Joan, I don't think we live far from each other, so I agree about this crazy wind! And now we are back to early spring again, cold and wet! Stick Out Tongue My onions croaked right away. I wonder how viable those seeds were. Our lettuce is okay and so are our green beans.
    Thanks for reminding me to prune the rose bush again. The snowball bush is doing lovely!
    Good luck Perky and thanks Petunia!

    I'll cheer for your lettuce, if you'll cheer for my puny little ones!
