I still haven't figured out quite how to keep my garden updates. For now they'll just appear here, sporadically.
So here's the "dirt" (couldn't resist that one!) on what's going on:
All my seeds came from Botanical Interests, which I was able to purchase at my local garden center. The strawberry plants are seedlings from Chef Jeff's, purchased at the garden center as well.
4.1.11 First planting:
Pea- Shelling, Green Arrow, approx. 30 seeds. 5-10 days to emerge.
Carrot- Carnival Blend (fun! orange, white, purple, and yellow carrots). One 4' row. 10-25 days to emerge.
Lettuce- Mesclun, Farmers Market Blend, One 4' row. 5-10 days to emerge.
Lettuce- Leaf, Salad Bowl Blend. One 6-7' row. 5-10 days to emerge.
4.10.11 Second planting, first emergence:
6 strawberry plants went in the ground today, they are Ozark Beauty Everbearing strawberry. I really pondered the June-bearing versus the everbearing types...and decided we like strawberries for a snack more than any other way, so it might be better to have fewer berries at a time, but all through the growing season. The kids helped me plant.
