I hate to complain though, its actually too dry. We have had no rain for over a month if i remember correctly. Its been windy also... not breezy...windy. Anyway, its so dry that authorities have asked people to not even use gas grills for outdoor cooking. Unfortunately, this weather just screams out for grilled food... luckily we don't have a water shortage, its just the old grass and dry brush in the woods that have them worried. Once things leaf out and green up, it won't be so risky. We have a 50% chance of rain for Thursday and a 10% for Friday. I hope we get some. Luckily the majority of my plants are drought tolerant.
As far as the plants go, things are looking great. They are pushing out leaves and sizing up. The goji already have tiny flower buds about the size of this o.
The rough looking blueberry at least looks like it will recover. The others are getting ready to bloom. I think i'll cover them with something this winter.
The Sparkle strawberries came in on Saturday and were planted in the big terracotta looking pot. I ordered 10 but got 11, so that was nice.
The Ancient sweet peppers on the right look so good compared to the ones i sowed weeks before. Basil and borage on the left:
Older peppers, eggplant and parsley:
Tea hibiscus and green shiso. the red never came up.
Small asparagus harvest
Still having to bring the seedlings in at night.
Its supposed to stay in the 40's tonight so maybe i won't have to take them in. Supposed to be in the 70's today, yay!
I got the cukes, squash and melons planted on Sunday
