The drama continues
Last weekend seemed to be the weekend to plant. Carol’s seedlings weren’t the only ones huddled and yearning to be free. I was busy on Saturday, so I planted some of my seedlings on Sunday afternoon. In the gale force hurricane winds that Carol blogged about...
Some of my tomato plants were a whopping four or five inches tall, but I’ve heard that you’re supposed to bury them up to the first leaves. After burying them that deep, they look pretty tiny and inconsequential. Not to mention unhappy about being buried alive in such an inhospitable place.
The peppers were pretty tiny and inconsequential to begin with, so they’re truly unimpressive now that they’re in the ground. In fact, it’s easy to lose them if the wind blows a leaf on top of them.
However, they’ve survived four and a half days on their own now, so I’m crossing my fingers and hoping that they'll survive.
If not, I still have plenty of seedlings left to transplant.
I am, however, running out of room, even with the addition of the new garden box in a grassy section of my front lawn.
If you look really hard, you might be able to see the poblano peppers, big Jims and Virginia Sweet and Kellogg Breakfast tomato plants in the box. They're not dead yet, which considering my level of gardening expertise, is probably a good sign!
