I've got 5 tomatoes plants out and 3 zucchini. We were right around the freezing mark but I don't think it hurt anything. I have a couple of back up plants in pots in doors just in case. I always sow a couple extra seeds just for such events. That should be the last cold snap and I do most of my planting on Good Friday, so this Friday should be perfect!!!

Default New Garden Pics

I have some updated pics of the garden. Some of the corn didn't germinate the first time so we replanted half of it about 2 weeks later.

The tomatoes , bell peppers, hot peppers are in planters above ground.

The ground is very hard and too sandy for planting in my area. The area we did have near are wall, the tomatoes just did not produce like the years before.

I have some smaller pots with seedlings of sumter cucumber, provider snap bush beans and early green broccoli. Seedlings planted are starting to appear in some of the pots.

A little more than a week ago, a slight frost hit, lost 5 tomatoes plants, 2 hot pepper and 1 bell pepper. So back to Home Depot for the plants and additional supplies.

I also picked in the additional supplies planting more seedlings of Pea Sugar Snap and Sweet Corn. Waiting game on how they do.

Wife will not be mad; but, will pick up additional long planter(s).

My plants survived the freeze we had and now my beans are sprouting. I've got some onions germinating in a pot now and they will go in the ground in a few weeks along with some more tomato plants I have in pots. I ended up working most of Easter weekend so I didn't get much done in the garden but hopefully I can get caught up this weekend, right after I finally get to go turkey hunting Saturday!!!!

Staked up 150 tomato plants. Deciding if I want to stake the pepper plants as well. Got blisters on both hands a skinned knuckle and bruised knee from missing a strike with a 5 lbs hammer. imageuploadedbyfirearms-talk1398444479.280907.jpg

Looking at the small tray with seedlings planted with Corn and Peas are slowly coming out; but, the Hot Pepper and Bell Pepper plants were beaten up by the wind last night and today.

The other seedlings are coming up, I estimated in a week or 2 will have to transplant to the main planters.

In Albuquerque, estimated 27 to 33 mph until 7:00 p.m. (1900 hrs.).

Spent the whole day today getting some friends started in beekeeping. VikingGal and I met him this morning at Ben Lomond Feed and Farm (awesome little homesteading store) where we picked up his two packages of bees, then we went to his house where we set up his hives then installed the bees in them. I got only one picture of it but took a ton of video that I need to edit and make into an instructional that I will be posting on my Youtube channel. I will post the pic as soon as I can figure out how to get it on my iPad.
