Just finished putting everything out in the garden today.. already had peas, herbs, bush beans, carrots, lettuce, and radishes out.. but put cukes, peppers and tomatoes just now... I planned on waiting for the peppers I started from seed... but it was sort of an emergency... I brought them outside to get some sunlight today, as a prep to plant them, but they all were drooping... could not figure out why.. there wasn't any direct light on them, so it wasn't that... they weren't exactly 'drooping', but bending over... the leaves were also turning a pale yellow, from a few days ago... so I put those outside[planted], along with the tomatoes I bought last weekend.. gave up on starting tomatoes from seed after 3-4 failed attempts...

Here's my garden count:

9 tomato plants

-3 beefsteavk
-2 Roma
-2 large cherry
-2 rutgers

6 peppers-
-3 Bell
-2 hot wax
-1 hungarian spice

5 alaska peas

herbs
4" x 4" sweet basil
4" x 4" dill
4" x 4" oregano

bush beans[unkown amount--have not sprouted yet]

one 3-foot long row of:
red radish
Danvers half long carrot
grand rapids leaf lettuce

4 cucumbers[all clustered together]
--2 pickling
-2 straight 8

And that's my list! lol I may have over-stuffed everything[only about 120 sq. feet.. in a sort of triangular shape]...hope everything works out.. and those peppers come back, now that I planted them... I know I should have waited for them to get used to the outside, but i didn't think they would make it..

You're probably gonna end up with HOT!!! Bell peppers if you plant your Hot pepper plants too close to the Bell peppers and they cross pollinate, Mark. GOOD JOB! I LOVE HOT!!! peppers!

Wow! I didn't know they would do that! I planted my bells near jalapeno and Thai chilis...guess I better test them before I feed them to the kiddos!

Your garden sounds great! Good luck!
