Planting results

Seems most everything germinated over the last week. The heat concerned me but I kept it damp daily, and apparently not too hot s soil temp.

I did it

Tilled up the garden - watering did the trick. Bought lettuce and cabbage transplants and stuck them in the ground. Planted garli cloves. Also planted from seed carrots, arugula, cilantro, more lettuce, spinach. We'll see what comes. Was afraid maybe te heat would be too much, but thinking the germination will be after the midweek heat, so i'm taking a shot nonetheless. I will water twice daily.

End of the heat.....??????

OK. I've been asked to update now that everything is dead and brown. I pulled the remnants of what was still alive over the weekend, and broke out the tiller. The small sectionn by the house was tilled, and I went to attack the larger section. It was very hard, and would have been quite an effort to get it tilled. Plan B is to soak it well 2 days from now and give it a whirl this weekend.

In the section that did get tilled, I did plant some radishes from seed. Those are easy.

Next - the cabbages, broccoli, and lettuces from starter plants. Garlic from whole cloves. Maybe this weekend.

From seed will go more lettuces, arugula, spinach. Maybe do some this weekend and hold off the rest for a week or two.

Stay tuned.
