Garden Update February 15, 2009
I transplanted my tomato and pepper plants into some larger pots.
I have new tomato seedlings popping up.
I shoveled a load of compost into my truck. (Free from the city)
Lettuce looks healthy.
All those peas that I planted have sprouted. I didn’t think they would sprout in the cold! I didn’t build an overhead support for this bed, I screwed up again.
Onions look healthy.
I planted 3 squares of carrots. Each square has a different variety.
I don’t think I’ll do the hay/newspaper/mulch layer anymore in the future. It is a pain to deal with when planting this many seeds. Each hole has to be poked, moving all the hay and mulch out of the way, then filled with vermiculite, the covered. It took me too much time. In the future, I’ll just leave the ground bare and deal with weeds as they grow.
Purple Haze carrots. I just removed all the mulch to save myself some time.
I also planted 1 square of radishes, 1 square of swiss chard, and 3 more squares of peas.
