With my short growing season here in Idaho, I am, as usual, the last of the Test Gardeners to have much to report. Two weekends ago we had 6 inches of snow! It had melted by the late afternoon, but still, with the cool weather, nothing wants to grow. The broccolli and fennel are out as well as the lettuce and spinach. The rest of our test vegetables are in the greenhouse, ready to transplant out if the sun ever shines and it warms up. Next week we should be past our last frost.
I had pretty good luck with most items germinating. One exception was the ‘Pinot Noir’ pepper—I tried three times to get it started with no luck. I still have seeds, so maybe I will try one more time and see if it will do something in the greenhouse as at this point it will not make it outdoors—our season is too short.
When the weather turns I will have more to report!
