While I Wait For It to Dry Up Outside...

While I wait for it to dry up a little, I decided to go back to my crop list for this year and update it a little. I have had a few failures already.

1) The garlic I put in last fall all rotted.
2) My raspberries are looking pretty rough, but will hopefully make it.
3) I cannot find French Tarragon
4) Looks like the cherry trees did not survive the winter

I have also had a few successes.

1) Got my rosemary going strong
2) Blackberries survived the winter
3) Grapes going strong
4) Strawberries going CRAZY
5) Have a lot of seedlings going successfully
6) Looks like the apple trees survived the winter and might bear this year (!!!)

Here are the plants I have started from seedlings successfully:

Tomatoes (Brandywine, Black From Tula, Cherokee Purple, Super Sweet 100, Dr Wyche's Yellow, Aunt Ruby's Green German, Green Zebra, Lemon Boy, Costoluto Genovese, Roma, San Marzano, Tumbling Tom)
Cabbage (Copenhagen Market)
Peppers (Zavory, Marconi, Serrano, Poblano, Thai, Cayenne)
Broccoli (Calabrese)
Sweet Basil

There are some plants I plan to direct sow from seed and was hoping to get in this weekend:
Cucumbers (Parisian Pickling, Tasty Green), Lettuce (Iceberg A, Mesclun, Mixed), Radishes (French Breakfast), Turnips (Purple Top), Carrots (Danvers Half Long), Parsley, Chinese Parsley, Cilantro, Coriander, Squash (Acorn, Crookneck, Verte Blanc, Rouge vif de Etempes, Black Beauty, Fordhook Zuchs), Sunflowers (Super Snack), Beans (Scarlet Runner, Blue Lake Bush), Cabbage (Toy Choi)

There are a lot of plants I have sets or starts for of some sort or another:

Sweet Potatoes (Centennial)
Potato (French Fingerilng)
Onions (Yellow, shallots),

Still need to get Oregano and Sage as well.


Hope to throw some more pictures up tonite or tomorrow. If I get anything done.

  1. Sounds like you're going strong despite the setbacks. I have a ton to do today in the garden, I'm a bit behind in my seed starting after going on vacation in the middle of planting season. Oh well.

    Too bad your cherry trees didn't make it, can you return them to the store for a refund?
