Might as well start the topic, since I planted my first green outside today.
2009-03-28: The seeds sprouted outdoors. Transplanted out the rest of the Little Caesar romaine and baby leaf spinach I started under seedling lights.
2009-04-04: Sowed breakfast and icicle radishes in one growbox, along an edge. Transplanted out a 2-week-old pod of Korean red curl lettuce (2 plants) started in the pro100.
2009-04-05: Sowed Korean red curl and Roman Emperor romaine on growbox edges, tendergreen mustard and toy choi in railing planters. [Um, I forgot I planted red curl there, and placed a kozy coat over it... oh, well.]
2009-04-28 & 05-01: cropped 2 Little Caesar romaines (whole).
2009-05-01: Sowed new lettuce box - Buttercrunch, Kojisan komatsuna, Four Seasons, Korean Red Curl, Little Caesar, Silvia red romaine.
2009-05-13: Reaped one of the oldest spinach to make way for squash. Reaped last icicle radish full-size - really don't like the flavor. Sowed 4 more radish seeds (French Blush and Pointiville) amongst the baby cukes.
2009-05-16: Added tan container to the greens project - planted lettuces little caesar, four seasons, Korean red curl, plus French blush radishes, baby's leaf spinach, kojisan komatsuna. Reaped bunches of mustard greens and toy choi. The toy choi had started to bolt.
2009-05-21: Harvested all the cool weather baby's-leaf spinach and mustard greens - all suddenly bolting. Sowed a few Bloomsdale Longstanding spinach to replace some of the baby's leaf, plus another Pointiville radish for a no-show in the tomato-cuke box.
2009-06-16: Removed the last of the greens from the tomato / zucchini growbox. Harvested two Little Caesar romaines yesterday to salvage them from the aphids, and apparently killed the third somehow. The spinaches were getting absolutely nowhere, so pulled them, too. All the growbox radishes have been harvested now, too.
2009-07-05: Replanted 2nd tan tub in swiss chard - added some lime, slow release Miracle Gro, and some more potting mix on top. Left one silvia red romaine - it was the only green in that pot that looked surviveable.
2009-07-19: Planted spinach (baby leaf & bloomsdale), gonzales cabbage, lettuces krc, buttercrunch, little caesar, and one other... On seedling shelf for transplant outside in August.
2009-08-06: Transplanted a couple spinach and 5 or 6 lettuces into the Bucks County tomato growbox. (Used to be a Lebanese squash sharing it, but now it's pretty open beneath the tomato plant.) I didn't label, so don't know what kinds of lettuce or spinach.
2009-08-08: Yanked last of the leathery summer lettuce and planted for fall: transplanted out remaining 2 spinach, a cabbage, and a lettuce. Planted seeds for another cabbage, couple baby leaf spinach, lettuces KRC (just 2 seeds), roman emperor (5), little caesar (6).
2009-08-23: Planted chard (annual bed - should like the alkaline cinderblocks) and toy choi and mustard (mid-deck railing planters). I'm hoping the chard will look pretty into November in the annual bed.
2009-08-29 ? : Seeded toy choi and mustard greens in railing planters.
2009-09-06: Planted radishes and more toy choi.
2009-09-16: Planted more radishes, toy choi, mustard greens in railing planters. Probably last outdoor plants for this year - should have night-time lows in the 40's by next week.
2009-11-01: Put a cloche back on each growbox and seeded one with toy choi, one tendergreen mustard green, one Little Caesar romaine.
2009-11-10: The cloches are sprouting.
