I transplanted the following into the garden this morning:
-Lincoln Leeks, seeded 6-14-14, Nichols Garden Nursery, packed for 2014.  I transplanted these in the back garden bed outside the guest room window, and in the next bed further out.
-Giant Purple Aswad Eggplant, seeded 6-15-14, Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds, packed for 2013.  I transplanted these in the back garden bed outside the guest room window.
-Genovese Basil, seeded 6-15-14, Seeds of Change, packed for 2013.  I transplanted one of these in the back garden bed outside the guest room, and one in the sunken bed between the garage and shed.  The soil in that part of the side bed, due to a layer of pine needles, has the tilth of fine vermicompost.  I transplanted it right next to the Genovese Basil plant that is thriving after surviving last winter in that location, so hopefully one or both will survive the coming winter.
-Black Enorma Hybrid Eggplant, seeded 6-15-14, Nichols Garden Nursery, seeds packed for 2013.  I transplanted these in the new front garden bed, among the bean plants.
-World Beater Ruby Giant Sweet Bell Pepper, seeded 6-15-14, Southern Exposure Seed Exchange, seeds packed for 2012.  I transplanted these in the new front garden bed, among the bean plants.

I sprayed all transplanted eggplant and bell pepper seedlings with my mixture of lemon dish soap, onion and garlic in hopes that they won't be eaten up.  We discovered snails to be the muncher of a few of the bean seedlings in the new front garden bed.  We discovered last night that snails didn't join the beer party we set out for them, but they were out on the plants so we plucked and smashed.  The slugs and sowbugs did join last night's beer party in the back yard, so I moved the front yard beer plate to the newly transplanted back garden area today, and hopefully a beer party rather than a plant munching party will be had there tonight.
