Waiting not-so-patiently for some capsicum seeds to germinate.

 

Taking care of the babies that arrived late last week from chileplants.com.

 

On an odd whim, I decided to try to grow a pineapple plant from a pineapple purchased at the grocery store. It's moving along much better than I expected.

 

And I am TRYING to remind myself that it's not good to inhale too deeply when generously sprinkling fatalii powder into food that is being cooked. Yep, I managed to gas myself pretty good tonight! :lol:

I may plant out 4 weeks early. I am trying to talk myself into it and out of it at the same time.

Same here, haha. I'm racing the clock, myself. I have a pretty major lower back surgery coming up any day/week now (after battling workman's comp for 9 months). Lumbar spinal fusion; I'll be on bed rest for a while. I'm physically not gonna be able to mix up 100+ gallons of 5:1:1 mix and transplant

Can't decide if I should take the risk and do it now, or not pot up (and have a shitty season, i.e. rootbound plants) until late June/July. New England weather is so damn unpredictable


Good news is: I ordered a dozen more air locks for fermenting sauce last night, and I've still got a bunch of boxes of pods in my freezer :)

I will be covering with shade cloth anyway so in the event of a frost, the shade cloth will take the brunt of it. I have had brown more gas come through 3-4 late season frosts and continue to put forth buds and flowers. I can't put out the whole grow but what I have back ups of can go out.

Today was getting 2 buckets ready with coco coir and perlite. These are going to be my CNS17 Grow experiment. Since ive got plenty lemon drops one will go in this. Others in my regular planter mix and at least one in the ground.

 

I will probably put the MOA yellow in the other coco pot.

 

I got the remainder of the Tidy cat buckets drilled for drainage. I still need to run upto the store and get some Alaska tomato and vegetable pellet food. Looks kinda good for a cheaper fish and kelp based fertilizer. Additional calcium too for the maters. Wally World has it for under $7 for 3lbs. https://www.walmart....-3-lbs/46855936

 

Still no sales on most garden stuff i want at Lowes or HomeDepot.

I lost the argument with myself and put my first two plants outside. Been getting down into the mid to upper 40s but my peppers have endured far worse. So this is the earliest I have ever started hardening off.

Finally getting some stable temps here in Southern CT (zone 6) which motivated me move my established seedlings that were growing under T8's in the cellar into the unheated greenhouse. Stepping up those plants into larger containers and started topping some too.

 

Brought 3 of 5 of the OW plants out to the greenhouse too. (They're not loving the move to much). Hopefull,y my lack of patience doesn't kill 'em .

Wally World had worm casting 5lb for around $5 and Alaska organic 4-6-6 dry fish and kelp (7% calcium too) for around $8 but website says under $7/3lbs

https://www.walmart....richer/47482940

https://www.walmart....-3-lbs/46855936

 

Wally World had blue bags again for 50 cents each.

 

Lowes had Ecoscraps soil for $3.33 a bag, normally almost $7 and over $8 at Wally World.

 

Looks like really nice stuff for the price. I got 10 bags to till into the roughly 64sqft plot https://www.lowes.co...Soil/1000180329

 

BTW it was 88F here today

I've been helping a friend build his greenhouse.

Took a ride to CCN for a couple of plants, and repotted all of my peppers that were in 5g buckets and amended the soil they were in.
