June 4, 2015 Weather & Update


Well this likely pretty obvious to most but everything looks good for the next week Рlikely good for the season now.

Busy putting stuff in beds, planters and pots. Really just time to get at it all now, but so far:

  • Almost half my tomatoes are in;
  • Most of my first basil crop that survived is in;
  • Most of the carrot seed that is going in is in (save for reseeding) and same with the beets;
  • peas are coming up in all four boxes now;
  • Some potatoes are in;
  • About 10 dozen heads of lettuce are in their final spots; and
  • Bees are working over time on the flowers on the Haskaps.

Bought small six packs of petunias from Can Tire. Almost a third of the cost of their larger six packs so beware. I find petunias are good bang for the buck, lasting long…all season long. Also bought some Rosemary from Arctic Farmer to replace the two plants I¬†fried with temps below minus ten in early May (one actually survived, barely).
