Feeling so far behind....
I am usually planting like crazy now, gardens tilled, beds prepped, mulch laid. Minus one bed of carrots that I planted in January, I have nothing planted. I hope that changes this weekend. I have 2 cases of onions to plant and a half-case of leeks. I hope I can get them in this weekend.
Despite a little on the cool side, 45-50, we are going to pull the plastic on the big high tunnel this afternoon. The highest wind gust all day has been 5 mph. Kinda crazy because on Wednesday it was 55 mph and last Monday we had 6 inches of snow! It is suppose to be in the 75-80 degrees on Sunday.
I am having problems with broccoli, cauliflower and Bok Choy. I am thinking it is some type of mildew. The plants get about their first true leaves, then they start to get crunchy and die. I started this year with new soil, new trays and new inserts. These plants are grown in our house under lights. I don't understand why they are dying. Everything else looks just fine.
I have 350 plus lettuce heads to transplant and another 200 plus kales, and 700 tomatoes and 400 bell peppers. I am behind on getting my plants to sell started too. Should have been done weeks ago, just not enough time. Once again, maybe this weekend.
If I get the new tunnel covered and finished, I will be feeling much better about things. Then I will get planting like crazy! Our first markets begin on April 19th. I already said I wouldn't be going, but I am thinking I will start around May 3rd. Time will tell.
How are things going for you?
