Home Garden the end of April & early May
The cold frame beds have been re-planted where there was available space.
In the left bed, I planted some leeks in the very back where the chard was, 3 peppers and some young lettuce seedlings. In the right bed 2 peppers, 4 eggplants, some dill and more onion sets were put in.The Kozy Koats were removed from the early tomato plants since they seemed to need some air from all of the rain we have been having. I think that they are much happier without them. If you click on the picture you can see that somebody took a liking to two of the eggplant the first night that they were in. The munching has seemed to stop now though.
Left pic: Snow Peas in bed next door are doing great. Right pic: The garlic bed with peas. I think that the Spring Blush Snap Peas have had 100% germination and are much much bigger then the Little Marvel English Peas in this bed.
The potatoes are coming up under their protective wire. The new growth on the celery is much darker green then the old. I think that many of the plants just got too much rain here at the house.
A couple of ground cherry plants were put in two of the patio planters and the lilacs are blooming!
Left, one of the early tomatoes before I took the cloches off. Right, the early tomatoes in the greenhouse bed. The tomato plants in the greenhouse bed are doing the best since they were protected from all of the rain.
Granny's seed mats for the carrots are doing great! These are some planted in between the tomatoes in the greenhouse bed. All of the carrots in the pots are also doing great...Thanks Granny!!
