We’ve had nice consistent weather lately. Had some fog in the morning, just a day or so ago. But it burned off by afternoon to nice mid 70 degree weather. Today its 3:30 PM and a nice 75 degrees outside. The 10 day forecast shows night low not lower than 41, with most nights between 45 and 54 so the nights are not so cold I have to cover anything.
We bought some more large pots for the garden. They are large plastic half barrel pots. I have transplanted two berry plants into two of them, put a fig tree (Celeste) in one, and put yukon gold potatoes in the fourth pot. I have planted 10 more strawberry Sequoia plants in the square planter I used last year. I did put more potting soil in it. I also put in 3 asparagus plants (Jersey Giant) in a bed.
The radishes appear to be coming up already, they have leaves. Some of the lettuce and the mesclun also are popping out of the ground with leaves too. All in all, I’m hopeful for the coming year.
I’m going to wait until we hit March 1 to plant any more seeds. By then we’re more likely to be past any frost, the soil will definitely have warmed and I can grid out one more planter.
I’m getting excited.
