The weather has turned (again). Things have warmed up to mid-fifties at night and upper seventies/low eighties during the day. The warmth has brought things to life!
I've been working hard trying to get things in the ground. Plot is now about 3/4 full. I'll sum all that up later this week for now, here's whats happening.
Bok Choy: massive growth in one week and now bolting. :/
Peppermint celery: about 50% size increase, very healthy looking.
Spinach and Kale. Now actively growing and looking good.
Deadish cukes, did not come back. Replanted (Lemon, Armenian, Burpee Hybrid and Poinsette)
Cucamelon: Hail took it out. Drat. replanted.
Fennel: Improving color. No growth yet.
Peas: Sprouting and growing!
Beans: Sprouting and growing! Mostly dead beans are coming back as well. I have too many beans.
Cauliflower: 180 turn around, no visible growth yet but much healthier looking
Purple peacock broccoli: Growing!
Purple potatoes and Red tenderlings: Sprouting! Man potatoes sure have pretty foliage
Tomatoes: all are in the ground. No losses. No visible growth yet. Looking less beaten up however.
Peppers: Looking good, blossoms are starting.
Winter squash with smushed stem: Still alive and still green. It proves that I cannot kill plants I don't enjoy eating.
Cantalope, watermelon, zukes, butternut. Planted today.
Popcorn seeds: No sign of life yet
Popcorn plants: Look terrible, sort of shrively as if they got hit with a herbacide.
Radishes: growing slowly. Fighting through weeds
Carrots: sprouting I think.
Onions: growing and looking good!
Artichoke: 1 happy 1 pouty
Eggplant: 1 happy, 1 pouty
I'm starting to meet my allotment neighbors. Its fun seeing what other people are doing. This has been a lot of hard work getting it all in, even with no till but I am close to seeing light at the end of the tunnel with respect to the hard stuff. Well other than the hauling of the water. Fingers crossed for Rain every 3 days of approximately 3/4 of an inch. ;)
