This past week was lovely. More days than not we had sunshine with temperatures in the mid 50’s which is just the way I like it. Mostly because I can still go outside with a long sleeved shirt and coat on without overheating. 😉
The puggle princess and I planted Walla Walla sweet onion starts, transplanted cabbage to the raised garden beds, sprinkled Sluggo around, planted a row of carrots and picked a vase full of tulips for the kitchen table. It was a good week.
I popped by the garden center to take a look and they already had several racks of tomato plants out for sale. I usually don’t set out my tomato plants until around Mother’s Day so I passed. I’ll drag the HH to the Farmer’s market in a few weeks and see if I can find a few heirloom varieties to plant in the pots on the back porch. I’m going to limit myself to just 9 plants this year. 3 each in the galvanized tubs and 1 tomato plant in each of the big Costco pots near the backdoor. I’m also thinking about starting my cucumber and zucchini seeds in a few days. I like to set those out in the garden around the 3rd week in May.
Gardening season… it’s finally here! 🙂 🙂 🙂
Have a great week everyone,
