I planted some of my peppers, tomatoes and squash too early. They're barely hanging on, but I have plenty of seeds to sow again if I have to. I think the only reason they're not all dead is because Iplanted them all at the pool, so The heat that reflects off the cement kind of has it's own little microclimate there. My potato experiment is slightly successful, but I ran into a weird issue with the second container I planted. GAM gave me some tips about the mistakes I expected I was gonna make. I did, but that was exactly why I did it as an experiment. I knew I'd make crucial mistakes, so I needed to do a test run to know what NOT to do. Next year, I'll be ready.
Lettuces are coming up alright, that's easy. except for the slugs(so gross). The peas are the 3rd time I've tried to grow them, so I'm pleased. I have cucumbers coming up and some green beans creeping up the fence, too. We'll see what happens. All the pics I've posted on instagram have been hashtagged- #blackthumbofdeath! sums up my gardening skills perfectly. I am a murderer of plants.
Carrots are another thing I can't seem to get right. I end up with all greens and no carrots. LOL
But carrot tops are one of Lucille's favorite anyway, so not a total loss. You got any advice on getting carrots right?
