#GardenWithJulia 2018 – Feb 3 Update

Garden Graphic (3)

2018 Intro – Here I Come! | Seeds! | Seeds, Round Two!

If you’d like to see, here’s the doc I’ve been using to keep track of planting/tasks/results.

And here’s the Texas A&M Agrilife Extension recommended cultivars list I reference for dates and such.

Hey there! Just thought I might give a quick update on the seedlings and what’s coming up soon.

My seedlings were getting leggy and I realized my light was probably too far away, so I lowered it and am hoping that it will help. Maybe not the already leggy ones, but those that haven’t had time to become leggy at least might have a chance.

Here’s what I have sprouted: Broccoli, Cauliflower, Celery, Cabbage, Cayenne Pepper, Jalapeno Pepper, Yolo Wonder Pepper, Sweet Banana Pepper, Dill, Oregano, Basil, Beefsteak Tomato, Cherry Tomato, Eggplant, and Onion. It’s so exciting to come in after being asleep all night or gone all day and find what new seed has sprung from the ground!

I’m planting just a couple more broccoli and cabbage plants today. I have 3 of each sprouted, and for my garden that would be enough, but I’m thinking it might be a good idea to have a couple of extras hanging around. I decided not to.

Next weekend marks 6 weeks until last frost date, and I have quite the list of things to start! I’m starting to worry I may need another grow light and some more shelf space! I also have a couple of things to plant outside if the weather isn’t icky. {Feb 4 update: I’m actually not starting that much next weekend. Most of the list was greens to transplant outside, but due to my limited space I’m only going to sow those directly outside. I will start a tray of herbs, a tray of flowers, and a tray of tomatoes. Outside it’ll be time to plant cauliflower, cabbage, and peas.}

In case you can’t tell, I’m very excited about the garden this year.

Are you growing anything? Share it below 🙂
