Mayday! Mayday! Mayday!
This is my distress call this 1st day of May, as the snow has been flying ALL DAY! Not sticking much, but still very depressing.
It’s times like this I need to un-knot my knickers and remind myself that the reality of where I garden is that the average last frost date is 25th of May.
To Sow Or Not To Sow.....That Is The Question
Last 2 days have been glorious. Apparently, yesterday was the warmest day in 190 days! Now everyone may understand why I have been bitching about the weather so much!
I have been watching the weather very closely, more specifically the overnight lows. These numbers have been fluctuating quite ...
First Really Nice Day
Today was glorious. I could complain about the stupid strong winds, but I won’t.
I actually spent some meaningful time in the garden, raking, checking on some of the plants. As usual, the oregano looks fresh and green and good enough to eat right now. I think the lavender is fine. The c...
I have potted up the cukes, petunia, some of the pansies and a few peppers and tomatoes.
I have an entire flat of peppers that needs potting up and a few of the larger toms need bigger homes as well.
I have done a tally of toms and peppers and will update those gardens. Besides the toms and pepp...
As the snow was belting down today, I finally accepted the fact that the flat of kale, spinach and lettuce I started awhile ago was not going to see outdoors for another week or so.
So…..I took the healthiest 3 of each variety and potted them up. The rest I put in picking reach of my 3-yea...
Kinda Sorta Did Some Gardening
I actually did some mucking around outdoors! Very much mucking around, as the ground is sopping wet and still much snow in the shadier spots of the garden.
Got the sump pump out and drained a bit of water out of the backyard.
Checked on the wintersown containers. I wasn’t expecting to see...
(Some) Tomatoes Transplanted
A few of the first batch of tomatoes were ready to pot up, so pot them up I did! A majority were from the “ooops” so I don’t know what they are. The second batch of tomatoes and peppers are catching up nicely. Not too far behind.
I scrapped the rest of the peppers that hadn...
Enough with Winter! It just won’t go away! More “flurries” expected this weekend. I think the weatherman is actually afraid to say “snow”, as all day he was referring to “active” weather coming this weekend.
On a different note, considering the “...
I had an unfortunate mishap with my soil blocks the day before yesterday. I kinda slipped-up with the tray the sprouts were on and most of the name tags got jumbled up. Ug.
There were 9 different varieties that didn’t get mixed up, thankfully, but I have 13 unknowns. It will be very obv...
……and more to come. I kinda feel like I am “behind”, but I’m not.
I did put out another wintersown container today of some native plants and some perennial flowers. I know it’s kinda late to be WS, but I seriously have no more room inside and it just makes se...
