Finally, some stuff is sprouting in the beds.  Green and yellow onion, shallots, peas, cucumbers, and lettuce. Rock-fucking-on. I’ve noticed already just how much faster raised veggie gardens drain – these things love water. I am thinking I’m going to add lots of mulch as the plants get bigger.

I’ve had my tomato plants outside a few times but they’re still not big or strong enough to be transplanted. I’ve already transplanted them once to 4″ pots from the little jiffy pot things to build up the room system but I can wondering if i have to do it again in 8″ pots? Maybe I’ll just use 4L milk jugs so I don’t have to go to Home Depot or Wal Mart. Again. For the 35646th time this month. Barry in the Gardening Center has already issued me with a restraining order after asking him where stuff is 8943 times a day. My numbers are not made up.

I still have to plant my tomatoes, garlic, asparagus crowns and basil and spinach, and a few other things. Nothing like a late start!
