April rolled in and we’ve got plants in the beds. Of the stuff we planted back in March, here’s what went in the ground this weekend:
- Oregon Sugar Pod Peas
- Genovese Basil (pesto)
- Danish Ball Head Cabbage
- Loose Leaf Lettuce Mix
- National Pickling Cucumber
The tomatoes broccoli and cauliflower aren’t ready to go quite yet, but hopefully they will be in a week or so. It’s warm and there’s no rain in sight (at least for the next 10 days), so I went ahead and planted bush beans, straight neck summer squash, a zucchini called cash flow, and some early sweet corn.
While we were down there cleaning and preparing the vegetable garden I went ahead and repaired the bean trellis, which was crushed by luffa gourd vines last fall, and planted several varieties of pole beans including Forex, Kentucky Blue and Rattlesnake.
