Anyway, here's a short peek at the garden.
The two beds (one show here) of garlic are growing well, but I'm kinda concerned about the yellow coloration here and there on the otherwise healthy looking plants.
I have an eight foot long row of slicing cucumbers in one of the raised beds under a cold frame. This is a section of the row I planted that obviously is ready to be thinned. Not bad germination for seeds from 2008, huh? (Kinda pushed the envelope on those old seeds, didn't I?) Needless to say, I planted the seeds fairly thickly, because I wasn't sure about their viability. Turns out the Marketmore 76ers were still right good seeds!
The Brussels sprouts are looking good, although still only about 6" tall. I have two rows of them with eight plants in each row.
I always plant my green peppers under a cold frame where they stay all season long because our summer nights regularly drop down cooler than peppers like it. Yesterday when I set them out, I got to thinking (ouch) and asked Papa Pea if he thought starting them out under hot caps would provide them with more warmth than the cold frame. He said it probably would so that's what I've done. The hot caps are only a foot tall so the peppers will outgrow them and then I will have to put the cold frame over them. Hopefully, by then the peppers will have a really good, strong start.
Even though we've been having warm days with lots of sunshine, our night time temps have been (and will be for the next week anyway) down in the 40s. So I've held off putting in my beans, squash, corn and other warm weather crops. Those 40 degrees at night tend to cool off the soil, and I don't want to risk those seeds not germinating well.
