Been gardening for some time, but just started going further down the rabbit hole with starting from seed and taking it more seriously.
My garden space is approximately 50'x14', with another patch that is reserved for garlic and onions currently as it ends up in shade the earliest.
Ill be updating this as the season progresses, but I will be showcasing the issues that I have encountered thus far.
I am in Zone 6b.
I plan on planting throughout the Season:
Tomatoes: Mexico Midget, Ukrainian Purple, Cherokee Purple, Wapsipinicon Peach, and Brandywine
Cabbage: Late Flat Dutch
Carrot: , Chantenay, Tendersweet, Danvers Half Long
Beet: Early Wonder,
Cucumber: Suyo Long, Double Yield
Bean: Fin de Bagnol, Scarlet Runner, Tendergreen and Provider Beans
Melon: Sakata's Sweet
Garlic: Ukrainian and Montana Zemo
Onion: Mako and Yellow Amish Bottle
Using seed purchased from Seed Savers Exchange, I found the germination rate to be close to 100%. So far the only issues I have encountered are from the imgur.com/a/TDFmBo2, where I pushed the starters too hard too fast, and a one off issue from one of my Diamond Eggplant starters where the top of the stem had withered, I believe this was from a dampening off disease, but I am not sure. imgur.com/a/QPkBG5i
This was compounded by the late freeze I experienced, but thankfully the transplants I had put out survived by cutting milk jugs in half and covering them. imgur.com/a/YG8TMFy
As for direct seeding outside, my Fin de Bagnol, , and Provider Beans have been planted, with a 2 week separation between the bush beans. The Provider Beans have been experiencing issues where the sprouts have no leaves when coming up. I am not sue what is causing this issue, whether it be soil or pest issues. imgur.com/a/CiakYT5
I look forward to tracking my issues and accomplishments, and hopefully we all learn a thing or two in the process.
