I promised I was not going to plant this year, but I had to go to Home Depot and there everything was. So I bought my annual cheat plant. For the new people a cheat plant is one of those hideous hybrids that and big and already budding and sometimes even have fruit. This is the tomato plant to get me through until the heirlooms produce. If they do. I have bad soil, that was infected with spores so I know I am doomed to failure yet I go on. I bought two cilantro plants (one for me and one for TeeCee who loves cilantro), a curly parsley, and a new oregano plant because my last one finally dies over the winter. I noted when I planted it that it is hot and spicy oregano! WTF? Now I have to buy another one. I don’t even know what hot and spicy oregano is other than a GMO, like the cheat plant,
I bought a green pepper and a yellow pepper and a Tabasco pepper. I bought a Tabasco pepper by mistake last year and it was a very pretty plant and I pickled the peppers to make hot sauce. Organic peppers are hugely expensive so I hope these do well. I also both 5-6 rutabaga plants. I’ve never grown them before. I planted them in a spot I rarely plant in and don’t plan on fussing over them much but hopefully by fall I’ll have some rutabagas. So the first round of planting has happened. I’ll probably try to get up next Saturday and get some more tomato plants at the farmers market.
I hope like hell this is my last growing season here. My stalker/peepingtom neighbor who has cameras pointed at my house 24/7 for his spank bank was of course outside watching nearly the entire time. Yep, time to move.
Has anyone else planted yet?
