First - I am speaking about tomatoes tomorrow morning at Atlantic Orchid and Garden at 10 AM - it is a free seminar. There is so much to squeeze in, but I will be talking about the colors, flavors and stories associated with some tomatoes, challenges to we who grow them in this area, a bit about the newly available Dwarf tomato varieties...and will take questions, of course. It should be fun! I will have a selection of tomato plants with me for purchase.
Returning to the garden...today was a day of transplanting, sorting the specific varieties I will grow myself (and ship to Storey Publishing on Monday - some of the feature tomatoes in my book, so that they can be grown there, in hopes of providing some alternative photos. I also managed to finish preparing another garden row, and beets and collards are now finally settling in to their new homes. It is much later than I hoped to plant them, but the weather conditions dictated the delay. I also am now the proud owner of 8 straw bales, which will be used in my own test of straw bale gardening.
Upcoming tasks will be preparing another garden row for bush beans, bleaching containers and getting my own tomatoes, peppers and eggplant going, and deciding upon my plans for the straw bales.
Not too much going on!
Finally, the seedlings look great and are plentiful - keep contacting me to set up times to come and get 'em!
