Oh My Word.... Somebody Stop Me!
I have gone seed planting CRAZY these past two weeks. I have filled so many recycled containers and Jiffy greenhouse starter kits I can't fit any more on my 5 x 6 crate in the sun room. My husband has began searches for a home greenhouse kit with fear he may lose his tool bench space this early spring. ( grin) I just emptied the plastic container the crescent rolls were purchased in and I have already filled it with my seed starter soil!
*First up on the list is to replant my Parsley. The seeds that I planted over 20 days are still not peaking through so I think they were not stored well. I had them in storage from a few years back.
* What a fine - a new Sunflower and Nasturtium. These will go right in the ground in mid-May.
* I found the YELLOW Cucumber my dear SparkFriend Dee recommended a few weeks back. Ferry-Morse Seed Company.
* The peppers and tomatoes have been started. I don't know if I am more excited then SCARED. I hope they grow for me.
* I have four different Poppy Seeds to give a try this year. We use to have a lovely garden of orange poppies at our first home that I KILLED. I had no idea what I was doing and that they could not be easily moved. We will plant these seeds in the next few weeks directly in the ground being sure to label them so we can see what becomes of them in the up coming years.
Green Report for 3/ 26 / 09
We have been blessed with some super warm weather for our neck of the woods. I am in zone 5 b and for the past three years we have been dealing with snow on the ground this time of the year. This may just be the first year my Magnolia blooms survive more then a week. I hope I didn't just jinks myself.
Climbing up to the 50's today - or so that is the Weather Mans' guess. I just got my Scrapbook Fix for the day making you all that tag to the left! Off to grab my shovel and rake and work on that never ending Spring Clean up.
