If you would like to have a continual supply of garden veggies its time for some succession planting. I just got done planting another succession of sugar snap peas and another flat of lettuce, broccoli and cabbage. I also planted some Swiss chard and spinage in another flat. I transplanted some tomato starts from our starter flat to small pots. We have had a very cold spring so my plants are growing very slowly.
I am visiting a friend and helping them out in their garden, we are going to seed some of their garden beds outside with lettuce, spinage, swiss chard, beets and carrots. We also transplanted some large tomato plants into wall of waters which is a new thing for me. The wall of waters are plastic collars that you fill with water and they surround the tomato plants and keep them warm even in cold weather and frosts.
On my friends ranch I am also transplanting some lettuce into garden beds that I started in a flat in mid February.
Looking forward to some sunny days…..
