The biggest gardening activity now is trotting plants in and out getting them ready to be planted in the ground (which I get a three-day rain break). Too bad it would be committing plant murder if you just took them from inside on the shelf to outside in the ground. This hardening off process is a little tedious.
Anyhoo…here’s a little update on my babies.
Here are the globe basil (planted 3-18, picture taken on 4-4).
Here they are on 4-17 growing in egg shells and a few Dixie cups.
Here are the peppers from Annie’s Granny, the transplanted California wonder peppers, a couple globe basil, and one borage being grown in a soil block of sorts. It was the last seed to germinate, and I scrunched the dirt around it and stuck it in with the other plants.
And the tomatoes. I’m only growing three kinds: Generic cherry, generic cherry, generic beefsteak. I started them in flats as opposed to individual pots, so I’ve been transplanting and pottting up and I haven’t been diligent about labeling them. I think I can distinguish the beefsteak from the cherry, but I’m not sure I’ll be able to distinguish between the two cherries. One is prettier and one has bigger tomatoes. Oh, well. Next year I’ll do better, but here’s one of the biggest and a couple of the smaller ones.
Lastly, the cucumbers: Lemon, bushmaster and pickling.
That’s it for today.
p.s. All you folks with your plants already in the ground, don’t laugh at my little ones. They’ll catch up when we get some warm weather around here.
