The weather has really been throwing me off this spring. As I said in my last status report, I feel like I’m way behind on my sowing. So, I went nuts again this week and sowed most of my warm weather vegetables and annuals.
Here is what I sowed this week…
- Summer Savory
- Lemon Drop pepper
- Casabella pepper
- Sunflower evening sun mix
- Salsify Taste of Italy
- Morning Glory
- Lavatera ‘Blushing Beauty’
- Cayenne pepper
- Chocolate Habenaro pepper
- Capsicuum annuum ‘fish’ pepper
- Ghost pepper
- Red Savina pepper
- Congo Trinidad pepper
- Red Caribbean pepper
- Datil pepper
- Fatil pepper
- Early Girl Tomato
- Tomato Super Sweet 100
- Tomato Jubilee
|Winter sown containers|
That’s 27 more containers for me, making my total 133. Whew, almost done.
I ran out of containers, so I started planting out the cold weather vegetables in the greenhouse in order to reuse those containers. Wow, I can’t believe I’m planting stuff in March!! I love my greenhouse!
Most of the containers from my first few rounds of winter sowing are sprouting. Actually, some of the ones I sowed in the last few weeks are sprouting already. It’s amazing how fast some seeds will sprout in perfect conditions.
I have 50 more containers sprouting since my last status report! I won’t list them all out, here’s a summary…
- All the cold weather crops (kohlrabi, cauliflower, broccoli, etc)
Winter sown seedlings
- Anise Hyssop
- Morning Glories
Thanks again to everyone who has been following along and sharing their winter sown container numbers. The number of containers sown by you so far is a whopping 667
Wow, our gardens are going to be amazing this summer!
