Garden Update

Well the Onions finally decided to show themselves, well within the standard germination timeframe at 9 days.

No cabbage yet so it is past its germination time by 1 day.

What I thought was broccoli actually turned out to be mustard.

The broccoli is also 1 day late.
The cucumber is 1 day late too.
The spinach still has a few days to be on time.

I will be replanting with fresh seed everything that does not come up by sunday.

My second planting into peat pellets have just about all sprouted with most of them being in the sprout stage yesterday.

I planted 2 seeds in each peat pellet of the following:

Sweet Corn, Early Sunglow Hybrid
Sweet Corn, Golden Jubilee Hybrid
Beet, Detroit Supreme
Beet, Red Ace Hybrid
Squash, Table King, Bush Acorn
Squash, Zucchini, Black Beauty
Squash, Vegatable Spaghetti
Bush Beans, Blue Lake

This weekend I will be planting:

Tomato, San Marzano, Roma Type
Tomato, Sweetie, Cherry
Tomato, Roma
Bush Beans, Burpee Stringless

as well as


As soon as I find my 6" pots, I will be transplanting the Bok Choy and Mustard to them.
