No beans, cukes, or squash sprouts yet - been 8 days. We had some cool wet last week for 3 days - could be a factor.

Planting done

Peppers went in last week during the week. Planted green beans, cucumber, and squash from seed today. Only thing left is melons which are in the house in pots - primarily until I can make room in the garden and see how things are doing. I'll plant them in strategic locations so they acn expand when the lettuces, etc start to bolt.

Bought and planted my 'maters today. I bought 2 each of celebrity, 4th of July, Juliette, and a cherry type called.....sugarsomething. All were bought at Dennis' Farm Store in Denton. Of the standard tomato types, Celebrity do best here. The others I tried last year and all were prolific and great tasting, notwithstanding the heat. Definitely winners and worthy of the purchase.

Spring 2012

Tilled up everything this weekend. Picked 4 cabbages, made fresh slaw, picked more carrots. Planted lettuce, cilantro, arugula, spinach, radishes, more carrots from seed. Also planted lettuce and broccoli from starters, and more red and green cabbage from starters, and red and yellow onions from starters. Too early (heavy frost this morning, below freezing) for tomatos, peppers, etc although the ground was warm to the touch - not cold like a year ago. 2 weeks and the warm weather stuff goes in.
