Rib tray going vegetarian
Not me! I would like to but can't seem to kick the carnivorous longing.
However, our latest rib tray from the grocery store has morphed into a seedling nursery for 6 types of eggplant (think I have more, but...) Black Cherry and Rutgers tomatoes, a flower and a new herb (stinging nettle).
The weather is too dry for me to chance starting these outside, along with extra precautions to protect them from Spottie. As many of you know, the seeds are tiny.
Anyone else just starting their seeds? I usually stagger planting for extended crops but as I noted in the previous blog post, I'm just getting started.
I am not all that upset that I am late in planting a wide variety of squash. In fact, I may wait a little longer to let the first, second and maybe third flush of squash bugs emerge without a major squash to go to.
Yes, I've planted two types, but I'll watch those closely and can protect a few plants. If I have them all planted, the job will be overwhelming and I will most definitely lose.
