Crazy Times and 2019 Planting Lists

We've gotten 9 inches of rain in February, which is close to our record of 12 inches. Maybe this means we'll get all the rain out of the way, and things will dry out enough to plant early. Now, that would be amazing.

The plan is to have a smaller garden with less plants to give individual varieties more room to grow. Diseases were terrible last year with the wet weather, hopefully giving plants ample room will help with that.

I'm not far behind you with about 8 inches of rain in the past 30 days. It's so soggy. More space and better air circulation definitely has helped with reducing diseases in my garden. I also give my tomato and pepper plants an early treatment of Serenade before any diseases have a chance to take hold, that has helped a lot too. Ajvarski is one of my most favorite sweet peppers now.

I'm definitely going to be sure to use Serenade early on this year, it works much better as a preventative. And Ajvarski is a superb pepper, so sweet and juicy. I can't wait for summer!
