- The onion tops are getting longer and more prominent. I am trying to resist digging one up to look at it.
- Three bean plants were planted.
- A zucchini plant was replaced.
- Cilantro plants are in the ground. The ones that were hurt by a storm were replaced with seeds.
- 14 more lettuce spots had seeds added.
- Spinach seeds were put in, as were Basil seeds.
- A replacement blackberry bush arrived yesterday and will be going in the ground today or tomorrow.
- Tomato transplants are being hardened off for planting towards the end of this week.
- Parsley seeds were planted.
I’m thinking of adding some more bean plants, but have been unable to find more seeds. I may have to go with bush beans. The one kind of pole bean has a germination rate of 60%. The second kind none of the 5 I started came up. I’m thinking it had to do with too cool of soil. I still have two of the seeds and plan on trying to get them to sprout and added to the garden. Though we don’t eat a lot of beans of the pod variety, we do eat some. They are also great for the soil so a good addition to the garden. Besides, if there is an abundance, I will put them on our Stand.
I don’t think the container on the deck will get planted this week; it just isn’t on my list. Next week it might get done. We’ll have to wait and see what the Lord has in store for us then.
What have you done in your garden this week? Are you taking part in the 5×5 challenge?
