The garden is shaping up really well - the two back rows are now completely planted, with an alarming amount of lettuce and beets, collards and chard and mustard and kale. The weather forecast looks to be turning a bit cooler, which would really be helpful; otherwise, the salad season will be way too short.
The spring flowers have been really strangely sequenced due to the unusual temperatures - not sure I ever remember the Bradford Pears blooming so far in advance of the flowering cherries and redbud and forsythia - and as they all fade, our dogwoods are coming on, as well as, seemingly overnight, the azaleas - it is all really quite stunning.
I decided to make a few lists on the From The Vine page to highlight some particularly recommendable varieties that may not be as familiar to tomato enthusiasts - check it out.
It was the right decision to wait until next weekend to begin bringing our seedlings to the market - they are still just too small, but they have "kicked in" and are starting to grow noticeably. I am answering request emails, and may start inviting people to our house to get plants starting next Wednesday!
