This will be my first official good day/bad day garden report for 2010. I think I mentioned in an earlier post that Tipper, over at The Blind Pig And The Acorn, had put out the call for those of us that wanted to do another experiment with planting according to the signs to get in touch with her and this year we are doing yellow crook neck squash. She even found a company that sells organic seeds that would send her the seeds to share with those of us that wanted to play in the dirt with her. The seeds are from Hometown Seeds and you can check out their site online at www.hometownseeds.com. I had such fun with corn last year that I jumped at the chance to try it out and see for myself how the squash would do.
So here I go with the first report of the 2nd Annual Good Day/Bad Day Farm report.
The plan was for all of us to plant our good day seeds either on the 17th or 18th of May-the best days for planting. The bad day seeds were to be planted on the 19th or 20th, the good Lord willing and the creeks not rising. I was able to plant the 5 seeds for the good day squash on the 17th and I also was able to plant the bad day squash on the 19th of May although it did start sprinkling on me while I was planting the 5 bad day squash but I don’t melt and I got them in the ground.
Now for the first photos….
To the left are the good day seeds. 4 of the 5 seeds came up. At the top of the photo about 1/3 of the way over from the right is the first of the bad day seeds. If I knew how to draw on my photos it would help, I know.
Fast forward now to June 3rd…
How about a stroll through the rest of the garden in the next day or two?
