First Plants in on the First Day of Summer
After three days of two to three hour shifts of sifting rocks and debris out of my veggie garden (See photo at bottom of page), I planted tomatoes, green peppers and herbs. I feel great getting these in the ground. The weather is extremely hot and the plants were not so happy sitting on the potting bench.
I've planted some Big Boys, Big Beef, Golden Boy, and Yellow Pear tomatoes. I also planted English Thyme, Thai Basil, Chives, Sweet Basil, and Tri-color Sage. This section is the skinnier section. It gets sun most of the day with shade creeping in around 3 p.m. I will have to wait to plant the other section because there is still some work to be done. I'm planning on pole beans, cucumbers, zukes, and perhaps an eggplant or two.
The bag is also filled with rocks.
