A few sore muscles but what a feeling of accomplishment on this rainy day. Trellises are up! Yes! Different sizes for different plants. The best news – all the supplies except the netting I already had from previous years. The photo was taken the day of completion and upside-down buckets made wonderful seats for a weary gardener.
Most of the little watermelon, cantaloupe, and cucumber seedlings are snug in their new home with a few marigolds as companion plants.
Napa cabbage sprouts are in one of the smaller hi-rise beds by the greenhouse and I hope the snails and slugs left them alone overnight. Hot and sweet peppers, tomatoes are planted and one lonely tomatillo was placed next to the garlic. I have read not to place them next to the tomatoes in case of cross-pollination. Basil babies – genovese, thai, lime and purple are still in the greenhouse but their home by the asparagus bed is waiting for them.
My petunia, salpiglossis ( looks like a taller petunia, new one for me), Irish Poet Tassel and zinnia seedlings are waiting patiently. Alyssum are still little. But my treat today was to go to a family owned garden center and pick up some larger flowers for the front of our home. Just some early color as I have calendula that have readily reseeded from previous years. Until next time.
