The pepper, eggplant and tomato starts got planted over the weekend. I was looking back over my blog from around this time last year and I am LOT further behind this year!
I also got seeds in the ground for bush beans, cantaloupe, chard, zucchini and Kakai pumpkins. I put the tomatoes in my square foot boxes this year to see if that helps hold the moisture in when watering.
Of course, I got all this finished JUST in time for our hottest week of the year with temps near 100 for the next few days and windy conditions predicted towards the end of the week. :(
I also pulled all the turnips and rutabagas and half of the snow peas so that I would have somewhere to plant the summer produce. The chickens were very happy to see the greens! :) Now, I just need to cook all those rutabagas and turnips! LOL!!
My herbs in the pots are all doing VERY well! The volunteer dill and cilantro are already going to seed! The basil was a little slow to get going but it is doing great now and my thyme I started from seed is starting to grow pretty well too.
I think my favorite herb is the oregano that comes back in it's pot every spring, plus I love cooking with it! :)
