Transplanting alliums and starting cucurbits

Mary Alice

Yesterday we transplanted shallots, onions, and leeks into a 100' bed.  We trimmed their roots and tops before transplanting and watered them in well.

Also I transplanted into pots summer squash that I got started in damp paper towels in plastic bags kept in a warm place in my house - on top of my stereo.  I like to start them this way because it helps me plant only the strongest seeds that I know have already germinated.  Also it's faster and takes less space.  Our heat tables are soooo full right now with tomatoes and peppers waiting to get into the ground in the greenhouses.
