I know, I know, I meant to blog on Monday. It's been a crazy week, and today is the first day I have felt good. I have got a lot done today, it helped that Emily took a very, very, very, long nap.
I worked in the garden this morning. I planted all my pepper plants, and then planted a bunch of seeds. I'm not done, but here's what I planted today:
Peppers- Hot- (56), Jalapeno, Anaheim, and Tam Jalapeno
Peppers- Sweet- (92), Giant Keystone, Orange, Gold Marconi, Red Marconi, Paprika, and Pimento
Pumpkin- Giant Atlantic- One plant that I had started from seed.
Pumpkin- Amish Pie and Jack-O-Lantern
Okra- Clemson Spineless
Squash- Yellow, and Zucchini
Cucumbers- Boston Pickling, Homemade pickles, and a few Ashley (they were free seeds)
The bad part is that when I got done with all the peppers I realized I had not planted any California Wonder, so I knew I had missed some in the greenhouse. I should be able to find a spot to squeeze them in. I am trying something new this year in the garden. I have had a hard time in the past with forgetting which variety I planted where. This year I am going to try saving seed, so I had to come up with a way to keep track of what everything is. I read in a magazine about using old mini-blinds as markers, and I must say, I really like this one. I cut the blinds into root-long pieces, and wrote the name on with a permanent marker. I may have to touch up this summer, but it has helped so much today in remembering what I planted in what row!
And last, but not least, here is a picture of my bleeding hearts. The flower beds are filling up nicely, my goal is to have them all full by fall.
