I’m getting very excited to plant cucumbers soon. It was 73F today and by the end of the week it should be about 78F. We had three weeks of 70-75F weather that I’d like to call Spring. Since today is the official start of it, Happy Spring!! Here’s what I’ll be planting:
There are a few other food plants I’m taking care of, a pumpkin, chiltepin (HOT!), and a cherry tomato. All of these started up themselves. I personally saved the pumpkin from the compost bin, where it started. The tomato sprouted where it is now, and the chiltepin had sprouted in a small pot full of potting soil. I transplanted the chiltepin because they need a large area of soil for their roots to spread. A transplant didn’t work on our original plant, even though it was suggested that they can withstand a bare-root planting as with roses. Oh well, there are two whole plants now!
I’ll post separately about all the rest of my non-food plants.
