Since my planting of the seeds not much has been going on in the garden. It’s been raining on and off. Thursday and Friday were beautiful days.
Asparagus:The more established asparagus is beginning to poke through the ground. It doesn’t all come up at once, each spear is on its own time table. You’ll recall that I planted some additional asparagus roots too. I dont’ expect to be harvesting any of them. You really have to invest time with this crop and remember that it’s a perennial and will come back each year so put it in a place you won’t disturb.
Lettuce: I made a succession planting of seeds next to the seedlings I planted weeks ago. Nothing big enough to harvest yet, but most of it is doing well.
Sage, Parsley, chives: Sage is sending up new shoots, chives are growing rapidly and the parsley seeds which dropped the year before are germinated and showing their true leaves (lots of parsley which I will have to thin so they don’t choke the chives). Again, leave these where you won’t disturb them they come back year after year.
Peas, Potatoes,carrots – nothing happening on the surface yet. Just a wait and see game. (I did have left over potatoes and stuck them in the ground next to where I’ll plant tomatoes. Unplanned, but I didn’t want to waste them)
I had started some other seeds indoors on those peat pellets and transplanted those into larger 4″ containers or party cups. tomatoes, peppers (which finally germinated!), onions, dill, cilantro, broccoli (which I might actually just put into the garden with a water bottle greenhouse over it).
