I'm Seeing Green
The tomatoes aren't doing as well as I like, but I'm still seeing lots of green. I have plenty of zucchini that has come through, but only 1 squash has sprouted. I started a few more last night in hopes that I can at least plant 4 of each in the garden. I decided to build 4 x 4 trellis' this year for the squash, zucchini and cukes. They produce delicious veggies, but they take too much room in the garden. I have several ideas for the trellis, so stay tuned for future posts.
In my last post, I mentioned trying to start dill for my pickles. I have 2 sprouts. I started six, hopefully the others will germinate.
The chili and cayenne peppers are doing great. I have 12 that have sprouted. I'm hoping for 16 chili, cayenne, Hungarian, and jalapeno.
I've started several varieties of mixed sunflowers in newspaper pots and Mexican sunflowers in the peat pots below. I love the orange color of the Mexican sunflowers. I hope they germinate, I want to plant them behind my tomato plants.
