My tomatoes are all planted and that is covered in the tomato thread. But I planted most of my other veggies already also. Put in one red pepper plant and a cell pack of italian parsley. Put in Snow peas and Green Arrow regular peas, started my pole bean seeds today. I have marketmore and salad bush cucumber seedlings which I still have to plant.

Then in my new tomato garden area I added some other veggies. I planted lettuce seedlings at the ends and then running along the middle between the two rows of tomatoes I planted celery and brocoli rabe alternating. Then I plan to put radish seeds along the outside long way. I have dill and chive seeds also, just have to figgure out were to plant them.

Here is my newly planted garden-

I went back outside and also planted my "salad" bush cucumbers and put more compost on the tomatoes I planted last week. Then I came inside and went on line to Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds and ordered more veggie seeds. Ordered three types of Chinese Long Beans. Never tried to grow them but figgure it can't be too hard. Also ordered Scarlett Runner beans that I often grow just because I like the flowers.

Plus some other seeds-
Crimson Forest Bunching Onion
Shanghai Green Pak Choy
Red Malabar Spinach
Five Color Silver Beet Chard

I never had any of these before. The Chard is the same as the one commonly called Bright Lights. The Malabar Spinach is not a true spinach but some sort of vining plant. What the heck. I am ready to try them all.

I am still waiting on my seeds from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds. Meanwhile I bought some Spanish Musica Bean Seeds from Reneees Garden and those arrived today. I already have them planted. I am starting them inside as nights are still cool here and beans will not sprout if it is not above 55, instead they rot. So I start my beans inside where it is warm. That is what I did with my pole bean (string bean) seeds. Started them inside and just transplanted the seedlings out yesterday. They look good.

Meanwhile I had bought some chives and dill seedling on those six pack cell packs and made a nice little herb garden out of them. Also, All my cucumbers are planted.

My Spanish Musica are starting to come up but I have them inside where it is warm. Meantime my seeds from Baker Creek just arrived today. It is raining and the mail came after 5 so I didn't get anything planted. I guess I will direct sow the Malabar Spinach and start the 3 types of Chinese Yard Long Beans inside.

The pole beans (string beans) that I transplanted outside are really looking great and growing quickly.

I opened the packet of MALABAR SPINACH seed and there seemed to be a lot of seed in there. So I direct sowed about half the packet. This way I have spare seed if for some reason they do not come up.

Then I decided my Chinese Long Beans needed to be started inside so that I can be sure they will sprout. I have Chinese Red Noddle, Chinese Green Noodle and Asparagus Bean so I will be conducting my own tastre test of wjich will taste better later in the summer.

The hot (and very humid) weather these past two days has really caused my pole beans to grow like mad. It feels like July and August what with the heat and humidity but I guess beans like it. I am growing five types of beans. All in big pots. One type to each big pot. And then I decided to try melons again. I haven't grown melons in about 12 years but I used to grow them. They are best growing up a trellis.

My veggie seeds came that I ordered Thursday and that they shipped Friday. The mail comes so late lately, after five that I almost missed that they were here! Lots of things, like the peas and brocoli raab I will be saving for a Fall crop. But I have two types of cucumbers to start seeds, China Long and Armenian. Only a very few seeds to those packages (peas have lots) so I better not mess it up. I will just put them in some cell packs with potting mix, this way I can keep them warm for germination. Not that warm would be a problem today, it is hot and muggy!

Rita, your little garden areas look quite manageable and your plants look happy. My vegies are all planted, and now our weather has turned cold, windy and rainy. I hope the bean seeds don't either wash out of the ground or rot.
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

Three pots of Chinese Yard Long Beans. Red Noodle, Green Noodle and Asparagus Bean.
Thumb of 2012-06-05/Newyorkrita/a32a40

I also have some cucumbers (salad bush) in a pot. And I already planted out cucumber seedlings I have bough which are Burpless, Marketmore and Straight Eight.

Meantime I put up a trellis in the only pot I could think of in a wide path my daylily flower beds because I have more seedlings started and need a place for them to grow. Plan on planting China Long (cuc), Aremenian Melon Cucumbers, Avara Melons and Palace King King Cucumbers on this trellis all of which I am starting myself from seeds.

It was raining all afternoon so really couldn't do much outside. But there were some times during the day that the rain was nothing but a super fine mist. So I put my gardening hat that I usually wear in the sun on to keep my head dry and I planted all my cucumber seedlings that I have started myself from seed. As soon as I planted them I immediately went and put sluggo around them so that I would not forget. Otherwise the slugs would eat them up overnight. I planted CHINA LONG, MARKET KING and ARMENON MELON cucumbers. I am extra pleased with them because I started them from seed myself.

They join the Burpless, Straight Eight, Marketmore and Salid Bush cucumbers already planted here which I bought as seedlings. I honestly don't know what I think I need all these cucumbers for! Rolling my eyes. Hilarious! Whistling

I also put bamboo stakes into my Yard Long Bean Pots so the beans will have something to climb. The yard longs are really starting to grow and look good. nodding Thumbs up

Things mostly going well. I have been eating my SALAD BUSH Cucumbers that I have growing in a planter bowl. The in ground ones are not ready but have lots of fruit. Well, the ones I bought as seedling do. No flowers yet on the cucumbers I started myself from seed.

This is the first time for Yard Long Beans for me but I can see already that these will be back next year. Also growing Blue Lake Pole Beans which I really like and have most years. I tried Spanish Musica beans this year as I had read that they have such a great flavor. Well, I don't like them at all so they will not be back next year.

Here are some cucumbers I picked the other day. Cucumbers have started nicely. The small trellis has the cukes I bought as seedlings which are BURPLESS, STRAIGHT EIGHT and MARKETRMORE. Then there are the SALAD BUSH in the planter bowl also bought as seedlings.

That is why they are ahead of my other cucumbers as I started those myself from seed. Then I planted them on the bigger treellis which is about 3 times as long as that smaller area. I have ARMENIAN cucumbers, CHINA LONG and PALACE KING cucumbers on there. Can't wait to get cukes from all three new to me varieties.
