Wanting to Garden
I know it is still too early to plant many things in the garden, but it seems so nice. I'll admit it's still getting a little cool at night (around 40), but the days are near 70. The garden centers are full of tomatoes and peppers and other such plants. But it is still 3 weeks til our last frost date AND I know that plants put in later often catch up or pass early plants in producing. We had some beautiful tomato plants when we lived in Baton Rouge once - they had these wonderful big tomatoes on them in early May. And there they stayed, still green, until it got hot enough in June for them to ripen!
I did plant some red onion sets this weekend, though. Evidently it's a bit late to be planting onions and they looked kind of sad (sad enough that the guy at the feed & seed gave them to me for free), but we're trying. I'd gone looking for seed potatoes, only to be told they were out and it was a month too late to be planting them. Funny since everything I'd been seeing online said to wait to plant potatoes until after last frost. Hmmmph. I put a note on the calendar to check on onions and potatoes in February next year.
I'm also impatiently waiting to see if my parsley will germinate. I know I shouldn't be concerned yet as its only just been 2 weeks since I planted and the packet says 14-21 days, but I really want to know if I'm going to have any luck with this batch or should I be starting some more. I guess another week will tell...
