Well, things are moving along slowly here. Finally got some plants in the ground yesterday. Ghosts and and a variety of cherry tomatoes. Back around last Thanksgiving, Walmart had a clear plastic football-shaped package of seven different kinds of cherry tomatoes ranging in color from yellow to dark purple. I figure most are probably hybrids, but it will be interesting to see what grows from them.
My garden is a total disaster, with bamboo encroaching on one end and brambles everywhere else. I have a couple spots almost ready, but in the meantime, I'm turning my front yard into garden space. (Already have blueberries and apple trees there.) The soil there is much poorer than in the garden proper, seems to be mostly sand and clay, enough sand that it has excellent drainage.
The Bocking comfrey I tried to grow there two or three years ago barely survived, so I've moved those that did survive to pots and have put the peppers and tomatoes into the vacated holes. I added a fistful of Azomite to each hole and will water with a low dose of water-soluble fertilizer each time I water.
If I'm going to have any significant production this year, I have to get a 18' x 30' framework set up and covered for some season extension.
As it stands, only the OWs are going to have a decent shot at doing their thing. Papa Dreadie, Bahamian Goat, Padron, Tepin, and a couple I won't know what they are until they start producing. Most of these have been up-potted to their final pots for the year and are starting to grow again.
I'll post some pictures in a day or two, if the damn deer and rabbits don't eat everything first.
PS - Gonna watch the CWS this afternoon. Woo Pig Sooie!
