Hey all, I am soooooo excited about my summer squash and zucchini this year. Back on a very warm February weekend Hubby had built me the new long raised bed for them. He knew I wanted plant more this year.
Here is a picture from about a week or two ago.
Well, we did a test this year on transplanting. I was very unsure about this but hubby thought it was a good idea so we did it. The seed packet said to direct sow them into the ground. So we wanted to test to see if we could start them early and transplant them. Bigger plants sooner means fruit sooner!
We tried it and as you can see there are a two that made it through the process and lived. One of them didn’t make it, but two did so i would say it worked. We will see how they produce in comparison to the direct sow plants this year to decide if we will start them early next year. By the way as a side note the leaves do NOT like to touch the plastic cover of the garden or the table top greenhouse hubby made, just keep that in mind.
But I also planted seeds at the same time I transplanted. unfortunately for me some of the seeds didn’t germinate. So hubby just planted more seeds today. I am looking forward to harvesting these fruits this summer!
It is still getting chilly here in the night which is why there is still plastic. I cover them every night and uncover them in the morning.
