Weather: The warm weather continues. The official high was 89º, but our unofficial reading here once again was 91º. Lower humidity prevailed and that made for tolerable conditions while we finished off our Spring planting. Weather Underground predicts a high of 90º for tomorrow. If we make that mark, we will have our first unofficial ‘heat wave’ of the year. (Detailed Summary – click here.)
Daily Highlight: Early Spring planting is complete! After a day of general yard work, beautiful spouse and I headed for the vegetable garden, trowels, seeds, and seedlings in hand. Here is what we accomplished:
Mr. Stripey Tomato 1 plant
Bonnie Hybrid Tomato 1 plant
Jalapeno Peppers 2 plants
Serrano Pepper 1 plant
Habanero Pepper 1 plant
Cow’s Horn Okra 8 seeds
Refugee Beans 13 seeds
Plantings: We have now planted all four types of seeds we purchased from Monticello. So far, the Georgia Southern Collards are doing very well. Most of the Early Blood Turnip-Rooted Beets have germinated, but they seem to be struggling. We’ll have to keep an eye on them.
