I’ve got a photo update on my Spring Heirloom garden. Unfortunately, not everything I planted in January sprouted (see Spring Heirloom Garden blog post) which may be due to a number of factors; maybe planting too early, missing some waterings, too much watering(?), who knows? Anyway, if you’ve read some of my other garden posts (see posts tagged ‘heirloom gardening’), you’ll know that my Russian Malakhitovaya Shkatulka Tomatoes, Black Spanish Radishes, and Patriot’s Carrots have all sprouted, and they seem to be doing quite well!
I know that my radishes and carrots need to be “thinned out,” but I just don’t have the heart to do it. I’m hoping once they get a little bigger I’ll be able to move them easily, instead of just pulling them out and tossing them.
In the next few days I’ll be planting some heirloom Royal Burgundy Beans and some heirloom Straight Eight Cucumbers (if I can find what I did with the seeds!) so check back!
