I will have to look back - it seems as though our cherry tree is in full bloom earlier than usual, the days getting milder, less frost threats. But if I want to push the season and get things moving quicker - to beat whatever searing, hot days lie ahead - there is no time like now to get things in gear!
So yesterday I transplanted basil, and today tomatillos and the start of eggplants. Tomorrow I hope to move through eggplants into hot and sweet peppers, in hopes of diving into the tomatoes as soon as possible. The lettuce, beets, and greens that I transplanted earlier are looking quite spectacular (pics to follow). I also planted the cukes and melons that will accompany me to market this spring. And Sara headed out to the garden with shovel in hand and turned over two long rows that will soon hold the lettuce, greens and beets. Now I must get the fence back
I am starting to get a good idea of what I will have available for seedlings.....and will do another edit to the From The Vine plant list by the end of the weekend.
Finally, we heard today that the final two new Dwarf varieties will soon be available - so Victory Seeds is carrying 5 of the new Dwarfs; Sandhill Preservation is carrying 2 of them, and Tomato Growers Supply will carry the other two very soon.
