The garden is not, in general, happy this year. To much rain, not enough sun and warm. In addition something has attacked a BUNCH of the melons. It almost looks like borer damage, except that it happened WAY too early to be borers. The good news is that most of the vines appear to have survived, the next question is if they can recover well enough to produce.
The last couple years the germination rates on my carrot seeds has been lacking. I put it down to old seeds, most of my carrot seed packets are old due to the fact that I don’t grow that many of any one variety in a year. So this year I decided to just do a quick broadcast spread of whatever was left of the oldest seed packets and then next year I’ll buy fresh seeds.
So of course every single freaking seed germinated *rolls eyes*
Here’s a picture of the carrot container AFTER I did some thinning:
More thinning will be required, but at least this way they have a bit of room.
Here’s the celery tire:
And one of the giant sunflower plants (in a jalapeno tire)
Both the Hollyhock and the Foxgloves I planted last year have come back up, and the Foxglove have been blooming:
Here’s my updated garden plan for this year:
