I believe it was last Thursday that I planted seeds I saved from my current crop (Bean, cucumber, pepper) to check to make sure they were viable. I put two bean seeds in one hole. To my utter surprise, they have germinated already. (Today is Saturday) How exciting to see my efforts bring success.
The soil is ready for the winter crop and I have planted parsley from my saved seeds as well as garlic. Tonight will be lettuce, carrots, beets, and spinach. Unless it's too hot. Then I will need to wait a week or so because these crops need cool nights.
I have to research how big a lemon tree has to be to transplant into the garden. My lemon tree has gone from 11 leaves to 21 during the summer months. I have been hardening it all summer, so hopefully I can plant it out doors in the fall.
|Do you think the lemon tree is ready to go in the garden? Or should I wait until spring?|
The blackberry bush is huge. So are the weeds behind it. I can't get behind it without being scratched up. So far I have picked 1.5 cups of berries with about 2 more cups still ripening. Not enough for a batch of jam, but enough to put into a peach cobbler. I see the fable of the ant applies here as well.
