Happy Memorial Day! I hope that everyone is having a wonderful weekend! We are still going strong at our house. I was able to get a lot of planting done, Matt was able to get started on our long overdo chicken coop. So, today will be a post full of pictures 🙂 Will be back tomorrow with more words!
I got a lot of plants put in pots as well. We still have a lot to put in the ground, but I like to have backup tomatoes in pots…and my peppers do better in the earth boxes than in the ground. In the front I have a San Marzano tomato plant, a brandywine, in the middle are 6 roma tomato plants – 4 in the pots, 2 in the earth box – in the next row I have an earth box of jalapenos (6) and one of sweet belle (6). The large pot in the middle is sugar baby watermelon (which never grows even though Emma picks it every year). In the back left corner of the first picture – pickling cucumbers. I have nothing in the two white pots yet, not sure what I will plant, maybe summer squash or herbs or lettuce 🙂
The weather was beautiful. We were all outside for at least 12 hours everyday, and we plan to do it again today. Can’t complain with this weather. I hope it keeps up. Although, some intermittent rain would help. You know, not 2 weeks straight of rain followed by 2 weeks of 80 + degree weather. But a few days of sun, then a couple showers one day. That would be nice!
