I had wanted to plant my peas, lettuce, and spinach on Monday. However, it has been too cold to be in the garden. According the the weather man, we are supposed to get about 1 inch of snow tomorrow, and one to three inches on Monday. I’m so over winter. lol
Since I wasn’t able to work in the garden, I’ve had to content myself with watching my seedlings grow. You know the old saying, “A watched pot never boils”? Well, a watched seed never grows. lol Here’s a few of my precious seedlings. 🙂
My biggest seedlings are the Roma Tomatoes. Way over on the right of this picture you can see a small seedling.
Those are the Beefsteak Tomatoes pictured below. They were planted at the same time as the Roma’s, same soil, same water, same light, different growth pattern. Hopefully, they are putting down some strong roots and will be overflowing with tomatoes this summer. 🙂
Just ignore the model cars in the background of those pictures. lol They, along with the cabbage seedlings are on the workbench in the craftroom so they can be under the light.
Here are some of my herb seedlings. The Dill is very leggy. They are in a sunny window, and I rotate the tray daily. Maybe the Dill needs to go live with the Romas.
I finally have a couple of pepper plants coming up. I was despairing of them ever coming up. I think I have checked those five or six times everyday, anxiously awaiting any sign of green. I almost screamed when I found the first one. lol
This week, our cat, who doesn’t have a name except “Mama Kitty”, had kittens. These four sure are cute. A fifth one didn’t survive birth. They are in a box in the house for a few weeks. At night, mama is in the girls room with the kittens. During the day, we bring them out to the schoolroom. The girls don’t want their brothers in their room all day. lol
And just so he doesn’t feel left out, here is our Australian Shepherd, Shadow. I took this picture last week when the sun was actually shining.
We no longer have our goats, and we actually miss them. Well, except when it was 9 degrees outside. Then we didn’t miss going out and breaking up their water. We also miss the chickens. We will be getting more chickens pretty soon, and I’m so excited!
Now, back to gardening! The Old Farmer’s Almanac has a chart for last frost date. There is only one city for Kentucky on there. According to that chart, our last frost date is April 15th. So I do have a few more weeks to wait to plant most things. I’m just so ready to have our own produce again!
Have you been able to plant anything yet?
