    Garden 2021

    Anyone started? I will have seedlings out in a week. Onions arrive in a fortnight.

    Not yet. Thinking about getting a greenhouse. Need to make more raised beds; lots of work.
    " If you are on the wrong road progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road and in that case the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive man. There is nothing progressive about being pig-headed and refusing to admit a mistake. And I think if you look at the present state of the world it's pretty plain that humanity has been making some big mistake. We're on the wrong road. And if that is so we must go back. Going back is the quickest way on.” ---C. S. Lewis

    Depending on your tastes, this is one idea for budget and height. Especially if you can get them free. Might need a trip to the car wash.

    Wood and steel are obscenely too high unless you can get it for free.

    I am going to start tomatoes and peppers this week. It is still too cold to plant anything outdoors yet. I'll plant peas and lettuce in a couple of weeks

    I will start peppers in a week or so. Maters a week after that. I don't like to plant nightshades before mothers day.

    I will recommend Boogie Brew. https://www.boogiebrew.net/

    I think it is good stuff. Been using it for 5+ years. Stuff is still good after that time. Just ordered another batch and got it in 4 days. It does take effort and a bit of equipment, but the plants love it.

    Hope to plant the remainder of my broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage in a few days.

    Calling sub 25 next few nights. No need rushing it.

    Peas just started pushing out. Not bad for 10 year old seed.

    48 peppers and 16 more basil started. Using some saved pepper seed.

    Start tomatoes after new moon.
