Fort Veggie

I got the metal fencing put up around the garden today. Hopefully round 2 of the plastic will be fine.  Saw a woodchuck today while i was installing the fence. Got him 2 times with the pellet gun. He's big and his den hole is big, but i know where it is.  Might be able to smoke him out.

Still no pics because i have not had time to work out how i'll get a consistent method of synching and uploading without going over what ever the photo site allows for usage/share limits.

The Spring that hasn't.

Yet.

Well,  no snow lately at least.  Chilly and rainy almost constantly. Easter Sunday was gorgeous, it got to about 80 degrees and was bright but it hasn't happened since.

Its almost worse than midwinter.

Cleanup day

After




Still more to go but the plastic is in great shape for this experiment of not tilling this year.

List of started seeds and irritations with tech.

I wanted to post some pics of current and recent things but i can't seem to get my blog - email - photo saving - phone gallery and etcetera to sync up. I've had this problem before and had found a workaround for it but that no longer ....  works.

So,  yep.  Gotta find something else to get through that. So annoying.

I did get my dates and seed names to list here:

On January 29, 2017

Peppers:

Carolina Reaper
Ghost
Ancho
King og the North (sweet)
Doorknob (sweet)
one seed of Purple Marconi that did not manage to germinate

Eggplant:

Meatball
Shooting Stars
Black Beauty

March 14, 2017

Tomatoes:

Supersauce
Cherokee Purple
Ukrane Purple
Pineapple Bicolor
Chocolate Miracle
Old German

And some Aunt Molly's ground cherries (finally got an early start on those after intending to for about 3 years-  but i always get volunteers even when i forget entirely.)

Yesterday the last (and hope to goodness) seed orders came in...   though i still need both purple and green shiso seeds if i don't have any more....   um,  to begin that sentence again:  The last full seed order arrived and i got to planting.

4-08-17

Ivory Pear Tomato
Edible chrysanthemum
Sabre Heirloom Ukranian tomato
Dwarf Tamarillo
Rosso Sicilian tomato  (free giftie packet)
Fox's Nose tomato
Garden Berry litchi
Black Krim tomato
Pruden's Purple tomato
Riesentraube tomato
Belyi Sakhar - White Sugar tomato (free giftie)
Black Vernissage tomato (free giftie)
Mitoyo Eggplant
Manganji sweet pepper (Japan)

So,  with 3 free gift tomato packets i overdid it on the 'maters again.  I also kinda forgot how many i had already planted. This is the hazard of not making lists! LOL

the only tomatoes i really was dead set on planting were the Cherokees, Pruden's, Supersauce, Fox's Nose and Ivory Pear.  However,  i'm not really complaining!
