I was hoping to start some cantaloupe seeds, but discovered that they should only be started in areas with short growing season 1 week before last frost (mid-April for Camano), then transplant oustside 2 weks after the frost date.
Some of the tomatoes from the March 2 planting have succumbed from too much moisture in the grow dome, so something to remember from now on.
What I planted tonight:
- 4 types of tomatoes: weeping charley, pantano romanseco, marmande, and principe borghese (they all died last planting)
- cucumber: Mexican sour gherkin
- strawberry husk tomato (a.k.a ground cherry)
- New Zealand spinach
- leeks: Bleu de Solaise
- pumpkin: sugar pie
