Anyone want some tomato plants?
As usual I have ended up with way more tomato seedlings than I could ever possibly have room for. I always imagine that the germination rate will be low, and it never is. There are also a lot of pepper seedlings which somehow lost their labels so I have no idea what kinds of peppers they will eventually become.
It is a good thing I have the extra space this spring in the excavated sand box, this will help, and I have managed to offload some seedlings to friends as well.
It is already planting time for early summer crops here. I plan on continuing to plant only what we eat a lot of again this spring to maximize my space.
This weekend I will be sowing summer squash and cucumbers, and some sunflowers for shade. My garlic and onions are doing great, as are the leeks. I will try to post an up to date garden picture soon because it has been a while, but I will need to do some weeding first.
Kendra's teacher at school has asked me to come and speak to the children about plants. She heard that I was into growing things, and wants to show some of the things I am growing during their science week at school. I am really looking forward to it a lot.
