AZ gardeners getting ready to plant? - Page 2

post #21 of 25
Thread Starter 
I just put in my broccoli and lettuce! Yay! Tip for beating the heat. Last year by fluke I planted a bunch of sunflowers and my daughter went a little nutso with the seeds-well they all came up and the plants near them grew like crazy and did great because they got enough shade from the sunflowers. So I am going to plant them toward the end of february and hope the same thing happens. I love this planting guide http://ag.arizona.edu/pubs//garden/az1005.pdf
It is great and tells you what to plant, what to start indoors and covers both growing seasons.

Our lettuce is nearly ready to be harvested! My mom got hers in just a little before ours and she's been harvesting like mad.

I started my seeds last weekend. The cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage, roma tomatoes, jelly bean tomatoes, sugar snap and soybeans all have sprouted. I went ahead and put the cauli, broccoli and cabbage in the garden already since they like the cool weather. We have two broccoli in the garden that didnt sprout until winter and now they are big, almost ready to eat! Those seedlings will love the cold. All others will stay indoors in the grow lights. I also got some heirloom brandywine tomatoes and cukes started this evening. I think i'll buy another grow light.

ERK ... doing garden cleanup, pruning the ironwood (need full body armor for that), shredding it and maybe getting to order seeds and plant some in a week.

Back outside today - it was so beautiful! I'd received my seed potatoes from Wood Prairie Farm (great service) last week and I finally got them into the ground today. Can't wait to see them come up out of the ground.
