Ragtag Garden - Growth Spurt

in gardening •  6 months ago

The radishes are thriving despite a three day stretch of hot weather.

I think it's been cooling off enough during the night that they haven't wilted. We're looking at more reasonable temps for the coming week, plus a chance of rain on Wednesday. They should really like those conditions!

The tomatoes haven't sprouted yet, but they take a long time. According to my research, I wouldn't be surprised if they don't show up for another week or so.

The next candidates for planting will be Hale's Best Jumbo Melon and the Straight Eight Cukes.

According to the planting recommendations from The Farmer's Almanac Best Days and the Moon Phase calendar, June 5th is the day to plant them.

Due to the cold, wet spring we had, these guys are going in late for the season, but sometimes you just have to roll with the punches.

Fingers crossed the guides are right!

Yay! I'm so happy to see you posting. I've missed you. I'm glad to see the ragtag garden going. I think my radishes are around the same size as yours right now. I got my cucumbers going this week and already see a bit of green. We've had lots of nice rain. I hope you are feeling better and to see you around more.


Aww, thanks! I'm trying to get back to the routine. Rehab is playing hell with the timing, but it's worth it. ;~p

Glad to hear you're having a good start, too!

Rain comes in and gives them a drink they will perk up and grow some more. Almanac is usually right, plant them and you will find out.LOL


That's the plan. Hopefully, the plants got the memo. Lol!

Very nice growth on the radishes I hope rest go as smooth. They already look so tasty. My own efforts so far have been a mixed bag. I got something eaten leaves and just a bunch of endless rain and cloudy days.


Thanks! I sure hope your weather starts behaving and the leaf munchers go away.

I'm glad to see you back to the ragtag garden again!


Thanks! I couldn't pass up the opportunity even if it's a little late & a little smaller. ;~p

Your radishes are looking mighty fine. The tomato seeds will soon be sprouting and you are once again off to the races. Hope you are feeling more like yourself again. ❤️🐓🐓


Thanks! It's an encouraging start, for sure, and a big step to getting back to 'normal'.

Yay! It's @aunt-deb and the Ragtag Garden!!! I can't wait to hear more. I hope rehab is going well and you're on the mend. :)


I couldn't chance the garden going back to a weed patch, so at least this will keep that possibility at bay. Lol! Rehab is going well and typing is much easier these days. Now that the flexibility is returning, we're working on stamina. Thanks for cheering me on!


Lots of love your way!

You have no idea how seeing this made me smile! If @aunt-deb’s garden is growing, the promise of summer is here!


That's the best compliment I could get!

Sneak preview of next post... some of the tomatoes have sprouted and a couple of the buckets have new seeds... ;~D


How exciting is this! I promise to take a peek tomorrow in the morning💜


Just fyi - finally got the new post up...


I’ve been MIA but I’ll head over later today to see! Yay!!!!💜
