With this unexpected warm spell I decided to get my garden ready. I was going to try some greenhouse techniques for the cold days of winter anyway so I just prepped the whole garden.
Would have been done last week but my rototiller needs a tuneup. Couldn’t get in touch with my small engine repair guy the past week and a half so I picked up a used rototiller off Craigslist for a great price that was a little rough and missing non-critical parts like air filter and pulley cover. I still dropped off the other rototiller after hearing back from my small engine guy then finished the garden with my recently purchased rototiller.
This year I did not dig up my collard greens or rosemary just turned the soil around those plants. I also replanted my Swiss chard and sage after turning the soil plus some roots and stem systems from , eggplant, some pepper plants and purple basil that seemed to have life in the stems and roots to see if they come back like rose bushes or a tree that has been cut back.
Planted some new lettuce, mustard greens, Swiss chard, stevia, a new eggplant, and Roma tomatoes (not sure why I got romo tomatoes I prefer other varieties). Tomorrow I plant some more items that start well this time of year for Northern California valley. Some items like the mustard greens can’t handle the valley heat once it starts.
I may implement some greenhouse techniques for some vegetables.
Anyway here’s some pictures of my 2018 Vegetable garden progress!:
