Planting Spring 2012

I ordered some seeds and plants online. The cool thing is that they wait to ship them until it’s time for you to plant. Click the image to the right to embiggen. I ordered the following varieties.

  • TOMATO BRANDYWINE seed
  • OKRA CLEMSON seed
  • PEANUT IMPROVED VIRGINIA seed
  • SUMMER SQUASH MEDLEY BLEND OF HYBRIDS seed
  • MELON ORANGE SHERBERT HYB seed
  • ONION YELLOW plant
  • PEPPER SWEET BELL plant
  • GARLIC SOFTNECK CALIFORNIA WHITE

I'm not sure where the garlic is going. After the tomatoes and peppers grow up some I will plant a second planting of squash for ground cover and as a fall crop.

Peanuts and Weeding

p1080827I planted my peanuts about 3 weeks late, but they seem to be coming in well enough. The corn and pumpkins are all doing well.
I weeded over the weekend and took out tons grass that I had been neglecting. It looks pretty good now and I'll try to stay on top of it better in the future.
