Radishes - growing in 10 gallon pots in my driveway, planted Feb 15, just started harvesting - 50 days from seeding
Lettuce - planted out into the garden, 3 plants of each type, progressing quickly, outer leaves should be ready for plucking in a week or so
Beets - planted out into the garden - in rows behind the lettuce and greens (two rows, about 90 beets). Settling in nicely
Various greens - chard, spinach, arugula, Asian greens, rabe - planted out into the garden, 9 plants of each type for the most part - also settling in really well.
Beans - two rows planted; Fresh Pick and Foremost. The long row has been dug once for two more types - Speculator, and Fowler. All are green podded bush beans. Fowler is the lone heirloom - first variety I obtained after joining the SSE in 1986.
Brussels sprouts - an experiment - I know spring planting them will end in less than spectacular success, but I will learn something of their growth habit. I will replant seedlings in late summer for a late fall harvest, hopefully. Seven plants are in the garden.
The basil row was dug and well cultivated, as well as holes for summer squash and cucumbers. Once those are planted, all that will remain is preparation for a row of dwarf tomatoes in the front of the garden.
Now, as for the From The Vine seedlings - the very recent and forecast weather conditions should get them to where they will be ready to bring to the Farmers Market on Friday/Saturday, April 15/16.
Certainly, lettuce is ready now - anyone that wants to purchase some at our home should call or email me to set up a time. And there is also a possibility that anyone not minding small (but healthy, and well weathered!) plants can start visiting us for pick up early to mid next week.
So, what remains today? I must finalize my garden talk for tomorrow - 1:15, at the Cape Fear Botanical Gardens, in Fayetteville.
