It’s time, it’s time!!!
Today, or actually Sunday, was my 8 weeks before last frost day. So I was waiting for my tomato and pepper seeds to arrive so I could get everybody started in time for transplanting in spring.
I knew we had a bunch of kids for a reason. My oldest wouldn’t nap today so he got to fill tiny pots with dirt.
He also moved the space heater into the laundry room and helped me plant.
Right now I have luffas that need to be peeled and processed taking up a bunch of space. But, once those are out of the way, I think I’ll have more space for flowers and herbs.
Im using a different table this year, I love it. It’s just a small folding table I got at Aldi for like $30. I needed something portable for farmer’s market and just to have handy.
As always, I planned for enough for our family and some “just in case” plants. I have 19 total tomato peat pots, 15 for the garden, 4 just in case-ers.
I narrowed to one variety this year- Bonnie Best from myseedneeds.com
Also started habeneros and jalepenos, basil, nasturtium, pansies, and hyssop.
Everything else, I think I’ll be able to direct sow. Until then, I’m getting excited for warmer weather and lower electric bills.
