So, it’s been a BIG week here! It is now past the full moon, and my plants were bursting at the seems, so they needed to get into the ground! I waited for a cooler day, around 18 degrees, that was cloudy and knew that there were decent days to follow. Sadly, I couldn’t see really far into the future (as in 5 days) and suddenly the weather is calling for snow…. so I will be covering all my babies for a few days with frost blankets.. yikes!! But anyway… on to how to transplant.
So, we harvested our first broccoli plant yesterday. I had to share my 4 year old’s video. He’s been helping me with mine, and now he wants to do his own…. super cute perspective of a young gardener… 🙂
Now remember, your plants MUST be hardened off prior to transplanting. I have a blog about that here too, if you look under “The Singing GreenThumb” tab. The other preparation you should do to save time is to make all your bump up mixes for under the plants. Each group of plants needs different nutrients. They will grow without it, but not as great. Here are a few mixes to make if you would like to try:
Mix for under Cabbage/Broccoli/Kale/Brussels
Alrighty! Happy Gardening you all!!!
