    What Have You Got Planted 2018

    The old WHYGP thread is gone so I think we need a new one. They are only relevant for a season so I put the year in the title.
    The first thing I planted this season was actually last year. I planted some onion seed last October and transplanted them along with some purchased plants in mid Dec. We had the coldest Jan. that I can remember and I lost my lettuce and cabbage planted in the fall.
    I started new ones and they will be ready in a few weeks. I put my first planting of tomatoes out on Feb 17 and many more ready to plant if it ever stops raining enough for the soil to dry.

    We'll last fall I planted garlic but I am unsure about how they are going to do this year as we had no snow and lot's of frost. But I did set up the garage with two brand new growing lights to start seed plants( I know I'm a little late compared to other). I have much to plant.

    My apricots are blossoming.
    It is supposed to snow today. I will likely get frozen out again.
    Plums are next. They seldom get frozen out.

    Kale, cabbage, broccoli, pac choi, and spinach. Tomatoes up under the lights waiting for the last frost date in mid April.

    there is still 6 to 8" of snow on my garden right now.
    But that hasn't slowed the rabbits any, from chewing on my raspberry canes.

    Last Oct, I planted 100+ garlic cloves for harvest in 2018. 2/3 were Chesnek Red and the remaining 1/3 is German White. That area of the garden had little snow cover, so the dirt started showing last week. So I started up the Snow thrower and threw some snow on that portion of the garden, to protect the garlic from premature spring grow and then getting bit by late frost.

    Two weeks ago, I started a Flat of Bell peppers. Some are a heirloom "Quadratto", a four lobed yellow bell. These grow huge (both the plant and the fruit) but need a long season, I usually only get 1 to 3 ripe fruit per plant, unless the season is longer than normal. If early frost, it's a total loss. The other peppers I started is Ruby King, a smallish 3 lobe red bell that ripens early and are very prolific in my zone, I've seen as many as 20 friut per plant with these in the past, if they are caged and I give them enough space.

    I will start tomatoes next week.

    Tomatoes and peppers are under the lights in the basement.

    Planted potatoes Feb. they are up and ready for the potato bugs, Red Lasoda type and trying some Adirondack purple ones a friend wants to try. Planted Pole beans Saturday, some had already sprouted left in ground from last fall. Everything green here tomatoes will go in by Good Friday, may be frost before then not trying the bucket thing again. Total garden is tilled and wanting to plant everything now, be patient my man.

    I'm sooo jealous of people that get to plant this early or get to grow certain vetetables. Still cold as a well digger's rump around here

    I've grown Okra for a couple years, just put seeds (clemson spineless) directly into the garden.

    Last year, only a few germinated, so this year, I am going to start them in the house this, probablt in a week or two. I only have a few seeds left, so I went online to see what different ones are available. and found some neat sounding ones from Baker Creek Heirloom seeds.

    Alabama Red Okra
    Beck's Big Buck Horn Okra
    Jing Orange Okra


    also bought a packet of Black Cherry Tomato seeds

    no annuals for me this year, just no time to dig and plant a garden before we'll be moving again. The fig trees are already putting out leaves as are the pecans, hopefully get a good harvest before we leave for North Texas.
