Zero harvest and zero gardening this past week. Forced to stay indoor the whole week.
All outdoor activities were at a standstill and all commitments and classes were cancelled or rescheduled due to a nasty spring cold compounded by seasonal allergies. By weekend was able to remain in a vertical position most of the day, so this week promises to be a better one. Not yet fully recovered, but should be a good week nonetheless, and by weekend I should be 100%. Better be, company is coming.
Many of my indoor seedlings have suffered from this past week’s neglect and it is too late to restart. Fortunately there are local nurseries where I can go to purchase a number of the plants I need.
But even better, there is the Cornell Cooperative Extension Dutchess County master gardener yearly plant sale where I know for sure they have the Ping Tung eggplant I grow and 21 variety of tomatoes (this is a dilemma, trying to decide which tomato varieties to grow, I have limited garden space and can grow only so many tomato plants).
Click here for more information about the Cornell Cooperative Extension Dutchess County master gardener’s plant sale, May 17 & 18, from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. and their list of annuals, vegetables, culinary herbs and perennials.
The “Comments” column of each plants’ list contains a wealth of information. You may want to peruse the lists even if you are not able to or have no interest in purchasing plants.
The smaller ginger rhizomes are doing well
The thicker ginger rhizomes are not doing well
Don’t know what the problem is. Maybe due to the yo-yoing weather, maybe they need to be bumped up to larger pots. If the latter is the case, I have a big problem on my hand. Lacking a greenhouse, where am I going to house all those plants until early June when the soil is warm and I can plant them in the ground? Need to put on my thinking cap.
The chayote (started rooting on 4/1/13) is growing
This is so exciting, looking forward to following the chayote’s progress and wondering if I will be harvesting any chayote????? Am hoping I will. Shall keep you posted.
