In every garden, some plants just don't make it.
Here's what the spinanch seeds I planted in pots look like now.
I had trouble getting my spinach seeds to sprout in my new cold frames so I tried in a more controlled environment. Unfortunately, by the time they were ready to go outside it was really too hot for them to do well. I hope to try again this fall.
The pots of spinach sit next to my pathetic onion sets.
I think this batch of onion sets just weren't as healthy as my other batch. These were suppose to be red onions. My yellow onions look much better.
The yellow onions have fallen down and are now suppose to stay in the ground for 10 days to 2 weeks. I've never planted onion sets before so this is all new. I guess the leaves should start to yellow and then the onions can be harvested to dry and be stored or eaten. I plan to chop several and freeze them in one cup amounts to use in recipes.
Here are some sad looking beans.
A few plant are OK but most are sad. My wonderful husband thinks the nitrogen is too high in our new raised vegetable bed so the legumes are going, "enough!"
The spaghetti squash and acorn squash seem to be just fine in the new raised vegetable bed.
