Written by Chris on November 21st, 2015

Late planting of EB3, trying spinace in one row, kohlrabi in other row.  Planted 11/21/15.


Lettuce 2015

Written by Chris on October 12th, 2015

Just planted lettuce, 10/12/15.  Earthbox 1: Red Sails on top row (row w/o water spout), Black Seeded Simpson on bottom row (with water spout).  Earthbox 2: Little Gem on top row (sans water spout), Lollo Rosa on bottom row (with water spout).  Lollo Rosa seeds too old I guess, some never sprouted, had to plant red sail in the bottom row middle two spots in EB2 (11/8/15).  Planted one cilantro 11/21 in EB2 where red sail never came up.

Written by Chris on April 8th, 2013

Grabbed a few more plants at Lowe’s today. No Early Girls at the local nurseries I checked, but Lowe’s had some. Final lineup from N to S (with nursery where I got the plant): Independence Day (Red Barn), Valencia Orange (Shoal Creek), Lemon Boy (Shoal Creek), Super Fantastic (Lowe’s), Early Girl (Lowe’s), Sweet 100 (Shoal Creek), Sun Gold (Shoal Creek).



2013 Tomatos In

Written by Chris on April 8th, 2013

Barely have had time to think about tomatos this spring, but managed to get started this weekend. Amended the garden with the same stuff as last year: two bags of Natural Gardener Revitalizer compost, 8 lb dolomite, 3 lb of garden tone organic fertilizer. Got four plants in yesterday (4/7): Sungold, Sweet 100, Valencia Orange (new variety for us here at PP) and Lemon Boy. No decent Early Girls at the nursery, so will seek those out and plant those this week.


Harvest So Far

All Early Girl except the lumpy one at the back, which is a Mortgage Lifter.
