I hope everyone is gearing up for garden season. The last seed exchange made me excited to get started and it always motivates me when I hear about what other people are doing in their gardens so I thought I’d share what’s going on – on my rooftop.
I setup the greenhouse on March 31 and it is currently almost full with:
12 tomato plants – grape, Rutgers, better boy
6 pepper plants – red, orange, jalepeno
Greens: Mesclun, Micro, Pak Choy, Arugala, Butter lettuce, mustard greens, broccoli rabe
Assorted flowers: Gomphrena, lavender, wildflower mix (gotta get bee’s up there)
Beans: Haricot Vert
Watermellon: Golden Midget (Mini 3 lb’ers )
Aunt Molly’s Ground Cherries
Eggplant: AppleGreen variety
On 3/31/13 I planted 150 trays of seeds, most of which are sprouting. I think I will have too many (is that possible?) and will likely give some away.
Here is what I’m growing inside and will be moved to greenhouse asap:
Chili Peppers: Ghost, Scorpion, Birds Eye, ornamental
Watermellon: sugar baby
Eggplant: Black Beauty, Japanese, Turkish Round, Striped Toga,
Herbs: Cilantro, Basil, oregano, lemon basil
Tomato: Yellow, super 100’s, yellow pear, Patio princess, Early Treat
Cukes: Mideastern, Kirby, Tiny Mexican Sour Gherkin (look em up )
Flowers: nasturtium, Johnny jump-ups, gomphrena
Share with the group what you are doing....
I hope this motivates you all. I better get a bigger roof…..
