Garden Status 5-29-16

Took a look at the weather forecast and took the plunge. Started planting seedlings on 5/29 and continued until 6/2. Meanwhile the perennials were coming up.

Planted seedlings still in their peat pots in the ground and watered them. Peat pots are great because you don't disturb the root system. And the planting process is easy because you are holding a seedling in a pot not worrying about damaging the roots. The roots just grow through the peat material into the soil.

Before planting the seedlings, I remove any old vegetation and loosen up the soil. I watered them sparingly every day for about a week until I saw new foliage growing.
