More on gardening
46 degrees this morning, cloudy...but my outdoor plants seem to be loving it. Kale, Collards, Cabbage, Spinach, Lettuce all are well. Can't wait to start picking and eating fresh stuff! I noticed the other day that the ground temp has risen to 50-60 degrees which is a good sign and will help those seedlings grow a bit faster. I also noticed the fig and apple tree(s) developing leaves as well as elderberry, blueberry and raspberry bushes. Indoors my Basil, Pepper and Tomato starters are growing with vigor, tomatoes about 1 1/2 feet tall...never start tomatoes too early indoors as it means constant transplanting and feeding! Anyway, farewell 'til next time and if you haven't started, now is the time to get some seed into the ground and have those fresh veges in May/June!
