Hey everyone. I have now got my actual gardening beds figure out and they will be in the process of being built over the next week so they are ready for this year. With that being out of the way it is time to jump in on getting some plants started.
I came across a site that basically tells me a good idea of when I should be starting seeds and planting plants into my garden in my area. This link is below.
Basically what I wanted to check with all of you guys is if this is a good guide to go by?
Before I move on with my other questions I would like to post a list of seeds which I currently have gotten my hands on. Note that just because I have all these seeds doesnt mean I plan to use every once as It depends what I can fit and what works well together. Also this is just as of now I may find something that I feel I would like to grow that I didn't get ahold of yet. First time grow who knows what to expect
List: Cucumbers, habanero peppers, turnips, carrots, radish, pumpkin, watermelon, bell peppers, jalapeno peppers, cayenne peppers, celery, purple tomatillo, cabbage, big bunch onions, sweet corn, summer squash, spinach, snow peas, sugar snap peas, iceberg lettuce, lollo rossa lettuce, cauliflower, broccoli, cherry tomatos, slicer tomatos, pole snap garden beans, cocktail type tomato, beefsteak tomato, white light onions, and eggplant.
So there you have it. Quite the list. At least for me.
So now for my other questions.
The first question I do have is will any of these guys fight with each other? I do know that plants fight for space and light but besides that will one of these guys not grow and produce well next to another?
My second question is how exactly do you know when its time to have all of these started when going from seeds? I do know that I can read the back of the packet which for basically every one of these it says on the packet start 4-6 weeks indoors before last frost but being a first time gardener I sadly have to say I don't know when that usually is in my area. Also that site I linked to doesnt cover everything in my list that I could see unless I over looked some stuff which then makes me wonde if they should be started at a different time. So if anyone had some help in that aea that would be great!
And my final question for now is about onions. When you do plant your early onions is it actually possible to start them indoor in fiber pots? Reason im asking is I don't know how long the fiber pots take to break down so I didn't know if doing that would hurt their growth when finally put outside.
Thanks to all that help. I wrote this pretty quickly as I am excited to get startedso sorry if some things don't make sense If you have any questions about what I am asking jsut ask and I will let you know.
