    Default 2012 GreenHouse, toms & cucs & 1 pepper/Update Pics

    Found a jalapeno at Jacobson's nursery, all the GH plants are now planted & growing.
    Lots of garden plants started too. Even have a 5 gallon bucket with some onions growing fast.
    Toms:
    4- Early girl (Alaska GH staple tomato) ;
    2 - 4th July (get ripe earlier than any other I've tried)
    1 Sun gold (yellow cherry tomato, sweet & I get lots)
    1 Mom's yellow, a rainbow colored, meaty tomato, an heirloom I believe it's real name is " Hillbilly"
    2 Brandy boy hybrids, from Burpee, this years experiment tomato.

    Cucs: 8 Sweet success, I planted the seed in the soil box & they are developing the true leaves already.

    1 Jelapeno pepper.

    I took about 6" of the old soil out before I planted the tomatoes, as the toms grow I add compost. Yesterday I added 7, five gallon buckets of compost. was the 2nd soil lift & the boxes are pretty full. I may need to add some later as it settles.
    I've had 2 blooms so far, not sure they will develop tomatoes , will know in a week or so.

    One of my GH Tom's has 2 blossoms on it. My Rhubarb is further along than yours but that's because all mine is planted up next to the south side of the house. After I covered the Garlic and Onion starts with visqueen, the ground really warmed up and all the garlic have sprouted.. only a few onions so far. I see Walmart brought up the majority of their starter plants from Alabama. They have a few tomatoes from P&M in Eagle River. I've always felt that plants started locally altho costing a little more, do much better than anything shipped in from L48. Maybe next year I'll get off my duff and start my own broccoli, Cauliflower and Brussel Sprouts.

    I have committed all my garden plants, but have kept one cuc plant in the house "just in case". No blossoms on the cucs yet. I now have 3 small tomatoes. 2 on a Stupice and 1 on a Siletz. Most of the other tom plants have blossoms now. Strange though, most of the tom plants I put in the GH first have yet to blossom, where as the tom plants I kept in the house longer before planting in the GH have all blossomed. I thought the first batch would have been "hardened off" and producing first. On the advice of Larsen's nursery off of Foothills, I've temporarily covered a lot of my garden with visqueen to increase the soil temp and speed up the germination.

    Default 6-4-12 GH pics

    GH plants are Growing, spite the cool weather.
    lot of green tomatoes & cucs are setting on.
    All the garden plants are growing, but slow so far.
    All seeds are up even the carrots. No potatoes poking thru the ground yet.

    your green house veggies always look so good. I'm not doing too well in the Tomato business.
    first those spider mites, and then early tomato blight... I tossed half of what I had started.
    bought 3 more starters from Wallys, but they are a bit behind. Cucs finally blossoming and looking
    half way decent. Amazing what a couple days of real sunshine can do for a garden and GH.
    The rest of my Garden is doing pretty well. picked my first radishes today.. eating radishes and
    onions right out of the garden..
