We live in zone 6a and I have been gardening and cooking for years. This blog is an opportunity for me to share with you my success and those failures that come about on occasion. Plus, I want to hear from all the gardeners and bakers and cooks out there and learn from you. Feel free to share your ideas.
I planted my basil this evening, and last night the bean seeds were sown. This spring has been so cool, the lettuce has taken off and so have the cabbages. I do not recall such a cool and at times a rainy spring. However, I have had my tomatoes in for a couple of weeks and they have even grown twice their size.
I hope my garden continues to head in this direction. But who knows what Mother Nature may bring next month.
I know it s a bit risky to plant tomatoes to their permanent bed this early in southern Ohio, but the long term forecast looks good. So I went ahead and planted them in the raised beds and large pots. My cabbages by the way are doing great. Frankly everything is doing well- lettuce, carrots, radishes, garlic has really taken off. The garlic is more than 2 feet tall.
