The B Life: May 2015

A Very Finished Greenhouse and Garden Update

 Well, I think I promised these photos about a month ago. It's amazing how, when you decide that you're going to be diligent in your posting schedule (even coming up with posts and ideas that are under time constraints), life gets in the way. 

Our plants are all twice the size now, and we have moved the Butternut and Spaghetti Squash, as well as both the Yellow and Green Zucchinis to the garden. This weekend, upcoming, we'll transplant all the tomatoes and peppers to their new home. 

The temperatures this weekend hit about 28 celsius, and so it was a perfect Sunday afternoon to begin planting season. Because we had a bad case of airborne blight on all the tomatoes last year, we're going to be expanding the upper section of the garden by about 10 feet squared to make room for a new harvest, hopefully unaffected by last year's disease.

I'll also be adding a few more herbs to the garden, but more on that later.

In the meantime, we're trying to get our zucchini plants to take to the trellis. We've never grown zucchini up before, so this is going to be a bit of an experiment. I'm hoping that it'll take quite easily. Last year we had a lot of rotting fruit on our zucchini plant because it crawled along the ground. I'd rather not lose an entire harvest again this year.

I'm putting spaghetti squash in the ground. What? You thought I looked like I do for TST all the time? :P

Stay tuned for more garden updates. This upcoming long weekend is sure to mean lots more planting!
