Garden Plans

We started a bowl with spinach seeds yesterday… In about 2 weeks, we’ll get another bowl going…
They are about 14" across and 8-10" deep…
I don’t know about planting peas on Friday… Seems as though we have to deal with snow Thursday… I can see the dirt in the boxes now… And I haven’t checked the soil temp yet…
I’m going to make some boxes for growing carrots… Elevated off the ground…

Finally… albeit a month behind…. Peas, spinach, lettuce and carrots are planted…. A few more boxes to prep up and the dirt work is done… for now

I’ve been working on a couple gardens. A cabbage patch and a terraced herb garden. Started some cabbage seeds. Still waiting for bud break on my vinifera vines. They are grafted on German Riesling rootstock. Everything seems to be taking their time.

I was all around my grapes the last couple day… didn’t really look at them…
When I go wandering about this am with a cup of coffee, I’ll take look… we are expecting rain, off an on today… maybe I’ll see if I can find the floor in the garage… too many projects and I sometimes don’t clean up my toys…

That is my carrot container…. I did screen the dirt with 1/4x1/4 mesh… we’ll see if it works.

This is my pea planting gizmo… wine corks cut in half and screwed to a board at 3” intervals… it’s only about 4’ long… but makes planting easier…

Very clever! We’ll plant our garden next weekend. Wife usually puts in tomatoes, banana peppers, zucchini, and cucumbers.

Our big planting day has been Memorial W/E… I believe it’s on the Victory Garden idea…

Look who’s poking their little faces out of the dirt! Peas! I also planted spinach in that box and they are coming up too!

Got about a dozen nice tomatoes off of the two plants my wife planted in late April……then caterpillars took over and things rapidly went south. Big caterpillars can be removed but these were lots of little ones.

I think if I do it again I would plant them inside the pool screen in large planters where butterflies/moths can’t get to them.

We did have some nice mozzarella Caprese salad with those fresh tasty tomatoes

One winter while we were down there we grew some tomatoes from seeds we brought. Those big green caterpillars attacked so I kept picking them off and tossing them. That got old so a spray bottle of Sevin fixed them.

Up here in NY I see the local farm stand guy has his tomato plants going in the black muck soil. No tomatoes on them yet. They will be as big as a softball and very sweet. Sweet corn will be next but I don’t want to rush that because it kind of marks the beginning of the end of summer.

This morning when I took Gus the dog for his walk it was 52° cloudy, windy and drizzling. Still waiting on some summer like weather. Boat is still on the trailer in our driveway.
