My first cabbage and lettuce transplants have been outside for 4 weeks now, aged 9 and 6 weeks, I think. Oh, how little we've grown...

There really was gorgeous early spring weather, after a ridiculously warm winter. Then we got a cold spell. Nothing died. But they sure haven't grown much either.

Hopefully now we're done with all that deep-freeze nonsense. (As of, like, 10:00 a.m. this morning.)

Outdoor Cabbage and Spinach 2015

The cabbages and spinach finally moved outdoors on April 2, a few days before Easter. Last year we really enjoyed the Chinese cabbage (and declared cauliflower never-again). This year I wanted to try Caraflex pointy cabbages, but too many other people did too - the seeds were sold out. So the lineup is:

5 Kaboko Chinese cabbages - hit from last year
2 Early Jersey Wakefield stone-head cabbages - new
1 Wa Wa Tsai - an even smaller Chinese cabbage (started with the spinach)

 It's spring! Saith the calendar. The weather doesn't say that as clearly. Last snow was... Thursday, with more coming tomorrow. But! There's a whole week with no temperatures forecast below 28 degrees! Close enough for the earliest stuff! Planting out pre-sprouted peas this afternoon, planted spinach and radish seeds, have bunch of transplant greens and pansies still protected indoors.

Spring Crops 2011 - with Spring Cucumber!

Kinda silly keeping this in my flowers topic... I listened to the Old Farmer's Almanac, though I thought the dates recco'd for planting outside were way too early... I still think so. But, some lived... Also, my indoor Korean cool-weather cuke was so successful, just have to try it outside, for spring cucumbers. With a couple other cukes that generate more male flowers, since that's been a problem.

The "Tomato" Growbox

My 2nd growbox was primarily dedicated to tomatoes - everything else grew around that priority. But, it was still quite cold when the growboxes arrived - indeed, the tomato plants I ordered from Burpee hadn't even arrived yet. And when they did, I still kept them inside, because it was still below 50 degrees every night.
