I have been crazy busy lately with work and meetings and organizing work and meetings and some living situation distractions.
I thought I would up-date folks on my garden planning:
Here is a pic of my three kinds of tomatoes (Cherry, Big Boy & Roma) and the bare spot is the bell peppers which are not doing well in my cold (52 degree) house (only one has “popped”) – even with a good amount of daytime sun. These pepper plants will go to a new (warmer) home to see if they will germinate. These were all planted on January 15th.
Here is a pic of the broccoli and onions I started indoors on February 10th – and they are both doing very well! I have been thinning out the broccoli a little at a time – and eating the sprouts that I pull (after getting rid of the part with dirt on it), and… they taste like broccoli (who knew). The onions are just breaking through the soil.
Yesterday I spoke with a friend of mine who happens to be a bit of a gardening guru, and she mentioned that NOW was the time to put peas into the soil. I will double-check this, but if it is the case, then I really need to take a few hours this week when it is supposed to be in the 50’s and finish my new raised bed and haul in the amended soil from 7 miles down the road.
Now, to many it probably sounds a little silly, but seeds sprouting and the prospect of putting seeds in the ground reminds me a little of the excitement I used to feel as a child around Christmas time.
