My North Florida Gardening To-Do List for April

My North Florida Gardening To-Do List for April

This was the hardest time of the year for me in college. Flowers were blooming, the weather was nice, and I wanted to be outside with my hands in the dirt so badly.

This should be a great month for planting, weeding, dividing, and transplanting.

My tomatoes are already in the ground, and zucchini have true leaves already.

Greens are producing well, and some are bolting and attracting pollinators.

1. I need to get my pepper plants in the ground. I gave up on getting my bell peppers to sprout, and just spent the 3 bucks on some. You can be sure that I looked for a pack with lots of two in one plants. 🙂

You may notice that my jalapeño and and habanero peppers germinated just fine though. Figures.

2. Plant green beans. I’m trying a new variety called ‘Tendergreen’ this spring.

3. Save seeds from my Johhny Jump Ups. Looks like some seed has already been scattered for next season.

I’m also excited that it seems like I will triple my blueberry production this year.

You know, like from 5 blueberries to 15. 🙂

In other news, I have some fun stuff coming up in my compost. More on that later- for now, let’s poke some seeds in the ground!

Morning Jog Bonus: Blueberries and Grapes!

Standard

Who takes baggie on their morning jog? Well, I wouldn’t exactly call my morning excursion a jog. It’s more like a walk / jog / hobble / lumbering  gait down the road. I took a bag with me this morning, because I had noticed some grapes growing by the side of the road a few days ago. Blueberry season is really over in this area, but there are a few hanging on in some bushes by the side of the road on my walk. It was a good excuse to take a break.  🙂

Have you ever found anything edible on a walk?
