We have 4 perfect gardening days coming before the next rain, so I'll be spending it seed-starting and building up the soil levels in the Salad Bar. It doesn't sound like much, but I let things get out of control, so I'm really playing catch up. Embarassed I have some kale plants that want to be in the ground, now, so I may have to up-pot them while I'm getting their beds ready.

Planted 10 Snow Fairy tomatoes, 5 eggplants and 12 peppers in 2 beds.  Nine indeterminate tomatoes went in the BTE strips.  Sungold and paste went into buckets and pots.  Dragon Tongues and bush Blue Lake beans have been direct sown.  Tomorrow the cucumbers, cantaloupe, winter squash and some of the flowers will be planted. Oh, and I planted 12 strawberry plants this year. I haven't grown strawberries since I started in 2013.

It's supposed to rain for 3 days starting Saturday night, so I will have to get out the pre-cut plastic sheets for the beds in case it rains hard.

I checked your 10-day, and you have 2 nights in the low to mid 40s. I thought we had to wait for all 50s before putting out the maters, etc. What gives, Girlfriend? geek

Embarassed Embarassed  I took a gamble and planted ALL of the starts.  The tomatoes do have a touch of purple today, but should recover later this week.  Starting Wednesday, the temps should be good.  We received a full inch of rain yesterday which is needed in this area. bounce

The next thing I have to do is lightly sprinkle some more Sluggo PLUS around the starts. Besides the usually sow bugs and earwigs, the slugs will come out with all this moisture.

Moved a ton of compost, to raise the soil level in one wing of the Salad Bar, then planted kale and Sugar Snap peas in it. Put my shirt in the dirt. I give up! California - What are you doing this month? - Page 41 43549 sawing logs

I know how big your salad bar is so you must be exhausted!

I have 95% of everything planted or sowed.  It's been rather chilly, windy and wet with the 1.2" of rain we have received.  So, last night, I got out the rain covers for the two beds planted with tomato, eggplant and pepper.  I have been wondering where some of the large binder clips went.  I forgot that some were clipped to the various labeled plastic covers.

Some of the red potatoes in 5-gallon buckets just popped up today.  When summer is underway, I will wrap them, and the other buckets, with aluminum foil to keep the MM cool.

I've been acclimating my seedlings for transplanting later (hopefully) this week. Doing a tree Kale pruning so I can get to the veggie beds easier. The Kale jumped the beds and hit the ground running after the winter rains gave them a boost. They spread out like a giant octopus. There's so much Kale, I've been giving my friends a tall garbage full bag every week so they can juice it. They will take all I can give them, but I personally can't stomach the green goo  No

I give a lot of Kale to neighbors for juicing - I'd rather eat the Kale than just the juice - and, then they give me back pulp for my compost tumbler. The Kale always outgrows what the two of us can eat, so I don't mind sharing it with them.

The plants are finally growing vigorously with the warm/hot weather.  Some of the beans failed to sprout, probably because of the rainy cool period we got, so replacements are soaking on the counter.

We have been working on replacing a 2'x3' bed built in April 2013.  As with any project, there is a glitch.  A PVC fitting has been leaking underground where the bed was.  That fixed, today will be filling and tamping the hole, leveling the ground, and moving 12"x12" pavers from the old compost bin area to this area as a foundation against invasive roots.

Some of the trellises need repairing, the support paracord strung for June sunshade, drip lines checked for leaks or plugs and the EZ Straw with Tack applied as mulch.

Getting further and further behind -- that's what I'm doing! frustration The a/c is on for the first time, and I'm stuck in the house, watching the thermostat hit 90 for the first time this year.

I did get a lot done on the balcony this morning, planting onions and pulling weeds, so the day isn't a total waste. happy dance
