As the transplanting continues feverishly through May, the latest transplants are doing well. As we shared, since April is the big month to get plants out in our Zone, we are a little behind. We are filling in the rows in our garden. We also had some pests show up during transplanting which did not help since plants sometimes go into shock when transplanted. So, we wanted to put out the biggest and healthiest plants possible to mitigate any shock and to alleviate any pest attacks. We also had to make some adjustments for our mold loving garage, which we lovingly refer to as the mini greenhouse. We are thus filling in rows with plantlings and expanding a little to give every plant the space it needs to grow.
As you can see from the pictures Habenaro and Green Bean are doing pretty well. Habenaro is delicate and still making an adjustment to the garden. We made some adjustments we hope will help her along. Green Bean is from the second wave of Green Bean transplants. The First Green Bean transplant suffered an attack from an unknown pest. Both of its leaves were missing leaving only a stem that produced no more leaves. Green Bean and Pumpkin were the first transplants. They both suffered the same fate. We have our eyes peeled for the responsible pests. We also picked up some news seeds that will be sown directly into the ground since we are in May and probably past the last frost of the season. Stay tuned to discover what we have sowing up next.
The Brussels Sprouts & Cabbage = Cabbage Family, continue to form into globes as they grow. It is amazing to see its transformation from a collection of outward pointing leaves into a slow motion globe formation. We will keep you updated on the progress of these delicious globes. As usual we have culinary plans for these plants. From one gardener to another …”…check back”. The question we get asked the most other than, is it ready to eat yet, is probably how is this or that plant doing? Or what is going on in the garden? Normally the questions are very specific but the range is wide open. What questions pop in your mind? Ask. What have you enjoyed most about the Organic Journey?
