Growing Seedlings


Within the last couples weeks I have begun planting some seeds (indoors still here). I am hopeful of our gardens this years, especially after last year's horrible season. The weather we had stunted everything and by August I had pretty much given up in defeat on our veggies.
This year I think we will go all out again. The colder weather crops will be planted in our garden by the garage and the warmer crops will go in the big garden by the pond.
First to go out will be leeks, onions, lettuces, spinach, bok choy, brocollli, cabbage, beets, radishes, carrots, swiss chard, beans, peas,cucumbers, and potatoes.
Then the herbs: rosemary, basil, dill, parsley, oregano, and thyme.
The rest will follow winter squash, summer squash, eggplant, pumpkins, corn, and tomatoes. Speaking of tomatoes, I'll have a few new heirlooms to try this year thanks to Danni at Critter Farm. She graciously offered up seeds to her readers and is sending me 3 varieties all the way from Oregon. The blogging world amazes me sometimes.

Oooh, look at all your seed flats...I'm so happy it's "that time of the year" again!!
What kind of potatoes are you going to plant, huh? what kind?? I'm planting German butterball & a type of Russet. Last year, I planted Yukon Gold and French Fingerling, but this year I'm ready for a bit of a change.
Your little seedlings look wonderful. I had to transplant some of my tomatoes into bigger pots today!
Yay for spring.. :-)

Oh, Anna, your pictures are so pretty. I like your blog template! What's it called? Is it available from Blogger? Glad spring is almost here, finally, after a winter of so much sickness and dampness.

Love your new header. I was startled at first when I clicked on your web site (great color!), but I'm old, I startle easily. :)
Your wedding crocus have been blooming for the past week. Waiting on the tulips.
Love you.
