I’m Dead

Five hours of tilling, weeding, spacing and planting did me in. I was already really sore in the neck when I woke this morning, but now I’m pretty much toast. Thankfully the sun mostly stayed away while I was out there. I wouldn’t have been able to get done what I needed to otherwise.

Tomato, Squash, & Pepper sections

Just ignore the fact that there are still weeds in every picture and focus on the accomplishment, ok?

Okra rows with a couple of watermelons in between

I transplanted:
Pumpkins – 6
Yellow squash -14
Bell peppers – 11
Lunchbox peppers – 3
Banana peppers – 8
Eggplant – 7
Cayenne – 6
Jalapenos – 8
Cinnamon basil – 4
Tomato – 1
That’s 68 freaking plants!

I ran out of space for peppers so I ended up putting the cayenne in the herb garden and the jalapenos in the flower garden.

Again, look at the flowers not the weeds. Ok well some of my flower garden plants are weeds.

There are still 7 small tomatoes and 2 habaneros that will be looking for homes in a week or two. If I rip out the mizuna and the broccoli and plant near the cucumbers and maybe next to the okra, I should be able to cram everyone in.

I estimate that I have 250 plants that I started from seed right now. No wonder I’m tired. That’s damn ambitious.

April Flowers

Sometimes it’s nice just to go around admiring and sniffing, especially at the end of a hectic day.

This damn mess sure boasts some amazing beauty.
