I was going to post on this yesterday and got sidetracked. DH is going to try to replant the seeds. He thinks the seeds are rotting because the soil is too wet. I can also say we do have some salad growing, 3 salad cucumbers, LOTS of bush peas, a couple sugar peas, and I think that's it. I really hope it dries out here soon. It's easier for us to have it dry and water than for it to rain and not have anything grow. Next year we are going to get a couple mini-green houses and start our seeds in that. The people my oldest babysits for have one and they have a lot of stuff growing because of it.
Okay I just went out because DH was planting a few things and are garden really isn't doing that bad. Our strawberries are actually growing (we won't have many this year and they will most likely be sour this year he said, but I'm actually happy they are growing). We have 2 different kinds of salad, carrots, bush peas, sugar peas, a pumpkin, salad cucumbers and I think that's it. The only things that really haven't taken off are the spinach, onions, tomatoes and zucchini. I'm not completely upset now. I think next years garden will be better, but it's not a total loss. Thank goodness.
i just planted a strawberry root in a pot yesterday. i think i will have to transfer it though it's not a very big pot, medium sized. No idea how long it takes to grow so hopefully we will have some success with that.
Most of my stuff's doing great...except on of the pots of lettuce. The plants rot off at the stem (at least one set of them has). I have good drainage, not watering excessively unless it's complement of the sky. Being in Seattle area, that might be quite enough, huh Angela?
Back porch is starting to look like a jungle. And my baby hosta has a bloom stock. It's going to be so very cute. I will share a picture of that. It presently lives in a small-medium pot. Should put a quarter standing up in the pot so you guys can tell the real size.
The red head lettuce -- four clumps has been just wonderful. My first crop has one more picking and the second crop's about 3 or so inches tall. Basils survived the transplant. Thyme needs harvested; I'll ask Robin to do that today. The Chinese Chard are blasting off now. I haven't gotten the rosemary in the ground. I've been stalling a little because we're house hunting.
When the rain stops, I'll try to take a picture to share.
