I’m not going to whine about the weather. And I’m not going to think about the 10-day forecast I just read. Now, on to happier topics.
Most of my recent gardening efforts have been inside the greenhouse. This weekend, I finished planting my warm weather crops. I set up the cucumber trellises and planted planted Marketmore, Lemon, Alibi, and Bush cucumber plants. As you can see, I’m continuing to grow lettuce under the cucumber trellis. I did this last year and it worked out well.
The tomatoes are putting on more growth and I’m seeing more and more flowers.
Outside of the greenhouse, my bean plants have emerged from the ground. I’m starting to see the first pea plant flowers and the blueberries are transitioning from flowering to showing early fruit growth. Speaking of fruit, in the next few weeks I’ll do a pollination report and provide a fuller view of how I expect the orchard to do this year.
I’m still not going to whine about the weather, but take a look at this little guy. I don’t think I’ve ever seen this level of mildew or mold or whatever it is in a seedling pot before. And this one has been inside the greenhouse!
In spite of it all, I hope you are happily gardening.
