The morning glories are already so tall, I hope I can keep them under control for another four weeks! Zinnias are in the foreground.
Ten of the tomatoes had to be potted into larger containers. They are the two varieties of Brandywines (pink and yellow), the Bloody Butchers and the Cherokee Purples.
Note to self: do not leave empty tomato buckets sitting in the garden bed. Wind has a way of knocking them over onto your lettuce plants! And just look at my turnip seed mats! In three years of using the homemade seed mats, this is the first time the wind has blown so hard it blew the soil right off the mats, then blew the mats away. The spinach mats are still intact, but more soil is needed to cover them now.
Look closely. You may have to click the photo to make it larger, but it looks like all of the shallots have emerged. I still have more of them in the kitchen, I guess I should find a spot to plant them. That's a cabbage transplant in the front, one of eight in this bed, interplanted with lettuce.
Shasta Daisies, Hollyhocks, Sweet William and lilies are all looking pretty good, growing along the fence line. Next month they will be joined by zinnias. I'm not sure if I'll put the morning glories at the ladder again this year or not.
The seed propagation area has been moved out of the bathroom and back to the plant window. It was pretty easy to twist tie the rope lights to the wire shelves, and here it's warm enough in the daytime to unplug them.
I'm still making my soil blocks one by one, using the block maker that John Best sent me a couple of years ago. The spinach was planted last night, the chard was planted this morning.
