This wild mild weather sure has things ahead of schedule. Today, though cloudy, it's almost 60 this morning. Most every day I bring something onto the deck to join the WS jugs and shells.
Today everything from the basement (except the tomatoes and a tray of marigold seeds) are up and outside.
Here we have:
6 WS clamshells
6 WS jugs
7 containers of onions starts (expecting the worst, I overplanted. WOW)
2 pots of (my rooted) red fucshia
6 zonal geraniums (that spent the winter in a south window)
2 pots of dahlias (hot pink)
pepper starts (hot lemon, volcano, big dipper)
2 pots Brussels sprouts sprouts
4 pots of mustard greens (Florida broadleaf)
And this year - herbs a-plenty:
green (Mammoth) basil
2 rosemary plants
1 pot of Greek oregano
Just off the deck out of the shot are
1 large pot of chives
2 bins of mixed lettuces
2 bins of pea greens (just sprouting! I don't have much luck with peas, so this year I'm planting densely in bins and will be harvesting just the greens for salads, stir fry, sandwiches, etc. YUM)
And for a bonus:
13 Japanese maple seedlings. I gifted my Mom's neighbor with a butterfly bush. She then invited me to take some seedlings from under her tree. What a treat! Hopefully some of these will root and thrive.
Hope your starts are doing well too!
After 2:00 p.m.
Eeeeeek. A massive line of thunderstorms approaching. Running helter skelter I brought my babies inside. Notice I now have to open up BOTH leaves of the table to accommodate my stash?
And just in time....thunder and lightning all around now. Hunker down, everyone!
