The rest of the tomatoes, peppers, and eggplants were potted up over the past week.

The Roma Tomatoes potted up last weekend are growing really fast. I am adjusting the lights upwards every couple of days:
On Saturday morning, I rearranged the potted up seedlings and did a count to see how many of each I had and compared it to my garden plan. I was a few short of some and a few over on others, so there will need to be some slight adjustments to the garden plan.
There is also some growing progress out in the garden:

I removed the hoop protecting the Lettuce, Pak Choi, Chinese Cabbage, Swiss Chard this weekend. The lettuce is ready for harvesting some of the outer leaves. Unfortunately, the Pak Choi is already bolting. I will try growing it again in the fall.

Carrot seed mats planted in the square foot gardens and Celery was transplanted to the Self Watering Containers (SWC).
The Heritage Raspberries planted last year have all begun to green up. I also spotted some new plants growing. This raspberry patch will fill in quickly at this rate.

This weekend, I started all my squash, cucumbers, and melons in soil blocks. These will be transplanted to the garden in only a few weeks. Most of these could be direct seeded once the danger of frost has past, but I have experienced better germination control with starting the seeds indoors. It also provides the plants a head start on the short growing season.
The in-ground gardens have dried out and are ready to be prepared for planting. We are hoping to accomplish this next week along with planting potatoes.
