Well it is the weekend and got more time to work on starting my garden. I have 6x12 for 72 cell starter trays. In all but the first tray, All plants are planted in rows of 6 plants each. The first tray is 18 plants each as I love tomatoes. Now have the following planted for my Spring Crops that i will start harvesting around the 1st week of April, depending on weather etc.
Tray 1: Tomatoes Rutgers, Tomatoes Large Red Cherry, Tomatoes San Marzano, Tomatoes Beefsteak
Tray 2: Squash Early Yellow,Green Arrow Pea,Cherokee Wax (Yellow Bush),Green Bean Harvester,Green Bean Kentucky Wonder,Cucumber National Pickling,Squash Green Zucchini,Pea Dwarf Gray Sugar,Tomatillo,Watermelon Crimson Sweet,Watermelon Sugar Baby,Cantaloupe
Tray 3: Broccoli,Cauliflower,Swiss Chard,Lettuce Green Salad Bowl,Lettuce Parris Island Cos,Cilantro,Lettuce Black Seeded Simpson,Lettuce Grand Rapids Leaf,Lettuce Iceberg, Spinach New Zealand,Cabbage Early Golden Acre
The first tray I had time to plant on monday night, and when I woke up this morning was already sprouting.
So far 35 dollars invest with seed trays and seeds. Next I will be making the frame work for the garden on the deck. And transplanting the first of the tomatoes to it in a few weeks. Last year due to weather and work I only harvested for about 3 months. This I should be starting to harvest vegtables in April all the way till November with some of the crop able to be put up for over the winter. The plan is to continously reuse the starter trays in order to have a much larger crop harvest this year in a much smaller area.
Still need to get around to the herb garden and figure out how many onions and garlic cloves I am gonna plant. And prep for the ones that can't be transplanted as easy. Like radish, carrots and corn. Thinking about using a kid pool for rice.....
Thoughts and Idea's?
