What’s in the Garden in May

Just a short run-down of planting, sprouting, and other happenings in the garden this week! It’s been warm and I’m watering nearly every day to help the sensitive young plants and seeds grow.

Broccoli seedlings May 2015 - NC Garden Gals

Seedlings are finally getting big from an early April planting. Will there be broccoli soon?

Pickling cucumber starts - NC Garden Gals

I’ve been “hardening off” the seedlings I started indoors, letting them get used to the outdoors a few hours at a time. Hopefully these pickling cucumbers will be planted in the garden this weekend!

Kale seedlings - NC Garden Gals

Direct-seeded kale coming up (most seeds did not germinate, sadly).

Lolla rossa lettuce - NC Garden Gals

I’d like to do another planting of lolla rossa lettuce. Only a couple of seeds germinated from the first batch I put in (early in April).

Lettuce starts - NC Garden Gals

Little leaf lettuce starts from the herb festival sale.

Garlic May 2015

Garlic planted last fall is looking hearty and on track for a summer harvest!

Happy strawberry plant - NC Garden Gals

A few of the strawberry plants mixed into the perennial bed are looking happy and bearing fruit.

I planted two types of bush beans the first week in May - Romano #14 and Strike. I also planted 2 heirloom scarlet runner beans, a gift from a friend, in a planter near the garage.
