Every year I try to get a head start, but weather is hard to beat. I planted peppers in November, but I have lost half of them to the rain and disease. I started lettuce in community pots but the broccoli I planted in July is still producing some side shoots and taking up the space in the garden. I did just harvest a couple of main broccoli heads and some side shoots so it was not a total loss. Hopefully, I can get the lettuce in the ground soon.
I harvested some pole beans, pak choy cabbage, and I have a daikon that is probably ready to come out.
One of my super chilies fell over and is probably done for. I planted some terenzo tomatoes and they are just started to form small tomatoes, but now the top is wilting so I don't know if I will get any to ripen.
Thank goodness it is January, it is cold (for me) but there are a few things I can still do. I just got in my first order of seeds. Kale, Bull's blood beets, borage, cilantro, Anaheim , habanero, mini belle, banana, Chinese Giant, and hungarian wax peppers, Parsley, Coriander, Grape and Chocolate cherry tomatoes, Romaine and oakleaf lettuce, Michili cabbage, Opal and Thai basil, lemon balm, garlic chives, bee balm, arugula.
I have cuttings in the box of bay leaves, Mexican oregano, black pepper, rosemary, mini red roses, green rose, curry plant, and lavender. Hopefully they all take.
I planted nasturtiums, peanuts, cilantro, parsley, Detroit wonder beets, mesclun, Jersey Knight and Mary Washington asparagus, a new Mr. Lincoln rose, and kale.
I'm off and running, as soon as the rain stops, I will pull out most of the broccoli and reclaim my garden space for 2014 and hopefully have room for all these seedlings.
