This Year's (2013) Vegetable Garden

My checklist for this year's vegetable garden:

Soil tilled? Check! Top soil added? Check! Plants bought? Check! Seeds for plants not available for purchase? Check! Plants planted? Check!

Now the watering ... and waiting begins! Oh, you're wondering what I planted? Lettuce, room for cabbage, Strawberries, Cucumbers, Onions, room for bell peppers, room for radishes, Tomatoes (Early Girl, I think they're called)

    And now I've got to cover it all up because it's supposed to get below freezing Wed. and Thur. night. - Bill, 2013-03-18 00:43:51
    Too late. We had a freeze TUESDAY night as well, so I lost my tomato plants already, and probably my cucumbers. :( - Bill, 2013-03-21 09:02:55
    So sorry Bill, I have everything planted too and will get extra tomato plants from my friends that own a nursery after the 15th. We got lots of rain so I don't have to water anything yet.j - Jeannie, 2013-04-05 05:43:31
    I replaced those original tomato plants, adding cherry tomatoes, and might have lost those too because even though I hadn't planted them yet I screwed up and left them outside one night when it got below freezing. So, those along with a NEW batch of tomato plants are now side by side in the dirt. I'm hopeful that two out the three freeze-damaged plants will recover. - Bill, 2013-04-05 06:08:18
