The buttercrunch lettuce I planted in the greenhouse just last week has emerged.
It’s hard to see, but tiny leaves have popped up through the soil. It’s not too far behind the batch I planted in the container on my deck.
The climbing vine tomatoes continue to impress me. I just cannot get over how strong they are. They are definitely ready to plant in the ground and their roots are starting to tangle so I may need to transplant them to a bigger pot.
I don’t want to risk losing them by planting outside too early.
I will plant a few from the brassica group outside next week. They are cold hardy and can handle the lower temperatures at night. Their roots are also starting to tangle so they’ll be happy to be able to spread out.
Except the jalapenos, all of the seeds I planted when we first moved into the greenhouse on 3/9 are doing well. I’m not too worried about the jalapenos. The first round of peppers took much longer to sprout than the tomatoes that were started at the same time.
The chives I planted two years ago has come back! The bright green spikes are definitely chives and have a delicious garlicky oniony flavor. Mmmm…baked potatoes.
Itching to garden
Outside with hands in the soil
And sun shining down
