Planting up a storm

the portofino's are up!
Are you ready for this? I told you Scott planted up a storm this weekend:

Straight into the garden (all seeds except as noted):

  • Scallion bulbs mixed among the veggies
  • More peas
  • The tomatoes (2 San Marzano, 1 Brandywine, 1 Yellow Brandywine) are in
  • Purple Haze & Thumbelina Carrots among the tomatoes because Carrots Love Tomatoes afterall
  • Hollybrook Luscious melons
  • Crenshaw melons
  • Honeydew melons
  • Ambrosia melons
  • Oakleaf lettuce
  • Some sort of Italian lettuce
  • Borlata onions mixed in with the bed of lettuce
  • Spinach mixed with French Breakfast radishes (only took 3 days to sprout with this warm weather!)
  • Parsley
  • A Japanese eggplant plant was put in a bed with the three Territorial peppers and basil seeds were planted all around
  • On the growing table:

  • Pimentos
  • Ali Baba & Sugar Baby Watermelons
  • Sweet 100 tomatoes
  • Serrano Peppers
  • Nasturtiams & Sunflowers
  • Camomile
  • Fenugreek (crazy huh? We’ll tell you how it goes and what we do with it. Too bad I’m not still nursing.)
  • Oregano
  • Lovage
  • Lemon Balm
  • Carmen peppers
  • Quadrato d’Asti Giallo peppers
  • Quite a list, eh? Hey, I told you the guy was a planting fool this weekend, didn’t I?

    1. Your list of seedlings is so wonderful! I can’t wait to read how your plants turn out. I had a minor greenhouse tragedy this weekend. I didn’t open the vent on Saturday and it got really hot. Most of my seedlings got cooked and I had to start over. Hopefully I will have some better luck this time.

    2. The names of some of these are like poetry. I hope you post a photo of the fenugreek when it takes off as well as the ali baba watermelons.

      Sarah, the same thing happened with our greenhouse last year. This year since we got a late start we decided to grow outside and tempt fate with the frost instead.

      Katrina, yes aren’t the names wonderful? I will certainly post photos. I too am very curious as to what fenugreek looks like.
