2015 Suburban Farm Report #1
The second year Cascade (front left), Centennial (rear left), Tettnang (front right), and Columbus (rear right) are coming along well. I’m a little concerned on one of the cascade bines, as it broke when I was trying to get it to train on the horizontal rope. Hopefully it can repair itself.
Hop Plant Expansion
This year I expanded to a full-ish garden. I ordered a Chinook plant from Great Lakes Hops.
Repairs and Other Stuff
My garden is raised a little, but it is not holding up. I need to replace the 2x6s I used to build it with something stronger and more able to hold up.
The rain hasn’t helped. This is as of 5/16/16, so only half of May is reported. As shown in the graph below,
I want to get some Jalapeno plants started, but I’m running late (May has been a busy month). We just had a cold snap here (as I’m typing this), so I’m okay with not getting them into the ground. But it will need to happen soon.
