I bought 11 starts from a garden center; tomatoes, bell peppers, banana peppers, basil, and jalapeños.
We've got the rhubarb and cilantro going as the perennials of the garden. We planted raspberries. I did three rows of sweet corn in the back from the seeds I saved two years ago. And partial rows of green beans. If the corn or the green beans don't grow, the. I'll just have to but store seeds and replant. I also threw in some sunflowers in the back corner just because I had some seeds from years ago. We'll see of they grow.
But now it's supposed to be below freezing tonight.... That's what I get for planting early! So I went out and blanketed.
I wasn't able to cover the whopper tomatoes, because Mat had (at my request) preemptively stuck fence posts in to hold them up (we've had serious tippage in the past).
I just took down the cages that weren't posted in, put short sticks around each plant, and covered as best I could. With the fence posts that Mat brought over for me last night. Those things are heavy- so it'll hopefully stay put!
