  • I'm going to be moving ours out next week. Right now, just our tomatoes have broken through in regards to vegetables. Our snapdragons and daisies are coming up though.

  • It looks like I started seeds too early this year. Squash and melons are surviving outside, but everything else didn't make it.

    Will the nice lady who brought seeds to the meeting this winter, please please bring a few more Anaheim Pepper and Okra seeds?

    By the way, I should be bringing some Mexican Sunflower plants to the meeting in about 3-4 weeks. So don't buy any. Oh, and Marigolds too in about 4-5 weeks or as soon as they're big enough.

  • I spread some of the dried plants of those giant marigolds around the garden and am watching to see if they start sprouting.

    I am not sure who had the peppers and Okra.

    Tamb, you showed great control. My tomatoes are bigger than I can keep under the lights anymore. They are in among the tubes, so today is their day.

    I am soaking my moon flower seeds before planting and only two have taken on water. I am going to scar the others and see what happens.

  • The deed is done. All seedlings and some unsprouted trays are OUTSIDE.

    I fired up the wood heater for what I hope is the last time last night and cleaning out the area of the greenhouse that stored the wood.

    Some marigolds are coming up by the house so the garden should be close behind. I am watching a new volunteer plant in a flower bed that is a low growing ground cover with tiny white flowers and has a leaf that seems to be a cross between clover and cilantro. No, we don't have any nuclear waste up here.

    I took a picture and will post a separate blog to see if we can I.D. It is probably a weed but one I might just cultivate.
