Back to the progress report...today's rain ensured that there will be no planting in the big garden today (which my sore body appreciates). As of today, this is the total of living plants in my yard:
Driveway indeterminate tomatoes in large pots - 29
Driveway Dwarf tomatoes in 5 gallon grow bags - 94
Driveway indeterminate tomatoes in 2 gallon grow bags - 39
Large garden Dwarfs in the soil - 15
Large garden indeterminate tomatoes in the soil - 4
that's a grand total of 181 tomatoes planted, with another 25-30 set to go into the big garden. Yes, it will be over 200 once it is all planted (which I hope happens early next week)
Driveway eggplant in 5 gallon grow bags - 14
Driveway peppers in 5 gallon grow bags - 43
Pending are the small (1 gallon pot) ornamental hot pepper project plants - that's to be completed next week.
Total plants in containers so far - 219. Seems like a lot, but is about half of what was there last year (though the 1 gallon hot peppers will bring the number closer to 250). No worries - the way that they are lined up, it takes less than half an hour to water it all.
With the seedling sales about done, it is about finishing text for the book, finishing planting the garden....then garden maintenance and photography right through the end of the season...
Pics, variety names, more details to follow. Off to go to our daughter Sara's going away party - she is off to Seattle (relocation, not vacation!) next week. What a nice visit travel destination we shall have!
