5/5 and the rain did wonders!

Post  quiltbea on 5/5/2012, 1:57 pm

I'm so happy to report the rain we've had for the last 3 days did wonders for growth in my SFG. I've got greens popping up everywhere.



above: My brassica bed is doing great with brussels sprouts, cauliflower, broccoli and cabbages. I keep row cover over them unless taking photos.



above: The strawberry bed is lush and even has blossoms on some of the plants. Thats a pot with Romaine lettuce and Munchkin brocc, and a pot of Parsley.



above: In the A-frame all the greens are doing well and the Romaine lettuce.



above: Here we have Chives, onion sets and Swiss chard. On the far right are the sugar snap peas.



Above: The herb pots on the deck did OK. I should have removed the drain saucers from below and will next time. A little too much water but so far so good.



above: On the garden bench the blue tray holds cabbages, caulilfowers and Pak choi that have been hardening off several days but brought them inside the last 2 nites out of the rain. I'll be transplanting them this weekend. On the right are a couple of peppers and some basil that will be transplanted this week, also.



above: The asparagus bed in its 2nd year and still too young to harvest.

I also put a tray of my largest tomatoes and peppers out to harden off today and will plant them a little early this year but our forecast looks like no more frost, but tomorrow nite will be pretty close so will bring them inside.

I'm a very happy gardener here in zone 5a, southwestern Maine.
