Everything in the vegetable garden has been planted out except for the sweet potatoes. Well, the sweet potatoes and some more peppers and herbs that I’m waiting to germinate. Oh, and the small Pink Pearl apple tree we still need to plant. But everything else is in, even the celery starts which are quite small. I wasn’t completely sure about putting them in the ground now, but I didn’t want to wait until they were rootbound.
I also completely forgot about our sunflowers. They’ll be a bit late getting started, but I think I’ve got a good place for them once we pull out our mustard.
I’m also thinking we may need to put more onions in. I had purchased some onion seed in the UK on our honeymoon, but their seed packets really didn’t have all that many seeds in them. With the expected failure rate of some of the transplants, we’re looking mighty thin in the onion department right now. We probably eat at least one onion a day, so we’ll need to plant more. Now I just have to figure out if I want more red onions or yellow onions. Reds are sweeter, but yellows store longer. I would say that we probably use yellows more so I’ll try that.
Hopefully next weekend we can focus on irrigation. That is of course if we get our order this coming week.
There’s always something to do…

My beds are still bare..it's making me crazy. I think we're finally safe to put the cold tolerant things out. Buying what we can grow- ugh!
Onion seeds are notorious for having a very short storage life (limited seed viability over time). So if you have the seeds.. plant them all or plan to purchase fresh seed next year.
We always plant out all of our onion seed since they only last a year.
oh boy, its been hard to keep up just in my little space. You guys work so hard!
@Esperanza, I think having the two of us share the work makes it a lot easier. There's no way I could do all of this without Tom's help.
Glad to hear the pink pearl graft took! I am looking at those beautiful pink flowers on our tree and looking forward to summer.
By the way, Rachel, I have some unusual peruvian hot pepper seedlings that I can bring to your spring potluck, if you have room to put them in somewhere. Just let me know…
Pepper plants? HOT pepper plants? Of course! We will make room for them. Thank you!
