In between rains over the last week or so I have transplanted from the starter pots:

  • the four varieties of peppers
  • the eggplants
  • the four varieties of tomatoes
  • when all the planting is done I will find miscellaneous spots for the left over brussel sprouts

Everything previously planted is doing great but the raspberries. Of the four root sets, only one survived, it was funny taking back three bags of dirt to Lowes, they took them tho and I got two potted raspberries, they appear to be doing great.

I have thinned the:

  • carrots
  • beats
  • cabbages
  • cauliflowers
  • brussel sprouts
  • spinach
  • lettuce
  • radishes

When I transplant from the peat starter pots, I tear off the bottom and plant two together. This year it has been so wet every starter pot worked, more thinning.

The peas from seed are doing great. GOOD NEWS, repeat, GOOD NEWS, the Fig tree survived the winter. All the perennial herbs in buried pots have also survived and have been dug out and are up on the deck.

All that remains are sown from seed after it stops raining in a couple days:

  • more carrots
  • more spinach (in pots on the deck ?)
  • more arugula (in pots on the deck ?)
  • more lettuce
  • cucumbers
  • pole beans
  • basil in pots on the deck
  • cilantro in pots on the deck
  • summer squash
  • winter squash when the peas and beats are done

This will complete the planting vegetables.

I will transplant the marigolds in the corners and in pots.
