My patch hasnít been very active the last few years - too many other hobbies and passions. I hadnít planned on growing anything this year with plans to be away the majority of the summer - then all my events were cancelled and I find myself at home with time on my hands. So here we go - no thought went into this. Just going to plant some of my own seed and see where that takes me.
This is probably the earliest Iíve ever put up the tent. I have a very low tech patch with no warming cables or watering system so hopefully the soil will warm up enough just with a tent and portable space heater.
Transplanted the pumpkins to larger pots today. As expected, soil tests came back with some nutrient and disease issues to be addressed, so there likely will be a delay in planting. So maybe the wind storm that toppled my tent yesterday was a sign to wait a bit longer and tray for a healthy plant rather than an earlier start.
These two plants will be living in the new and improved hoop house now. Weíre behind a bit and thereís more to do to mitigate nutrient deficiencies but Iíve come to the stage where I just have to move forward. Hoping to get them planted when the soil warms up a bit.
