This week is supposed to be in the 70's, so Im hoping to get the tomatoes, eggplants and peppers in. They've been Harding in and out of my garage. Im looking forward to Mother Nature taking care of them, as she'll do a much better job than I will.
Once they're out of the garage, Ill move the stuff I have in the basement ( under the lights) into the garage to take their place hardening off. Those would be the different squashes I got going ( Delicata, Spaghetti , Turban, pumpkin, butternut. Also got some beans down there ( yard long and winged, both new to me this year ).
Peanuts and okra still need to mature more before moving them up and out ( usually late may).
Ill head over to the nursery to get some cucumbers and zucchini.
Iill keep a close eye on my string beans. I started them outside , but they have a tendency to rot , even before sprouting, or the cut worms get them early on. So, Ill give them a week or so. f int looks like they are failing, ill pick them up too. Then its the waiting game, of nurturing them and letting them all mature.
Currently I got Onions, garlic, shallots, potatoes, spinach, carrots, beets ,cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts dill, cilantro, string beans all in, but not harvestable yet
lettuce, radish, arugula, chives, scallions all up and in the process of being eaten
Kale, harvested all last week to make room for the other things going in.
In addition, got 3 mushroom beds and 2 logs inoculated. Got some shiitake already. The others, may have to wait til fall to mature and produce.
Fruit trees flowering. Got a few rounds of mason bees to pollinate them.
Just got my first bunch of leaf cutter bees too pollinate the rest of the veggies as they flower
In a few weeks ill incubate the praying mantis egg sacs.
