    Default How are we all doing?

    Anyone getting ready for Spring? I have one garden plot all ready for Spring. I am working on a second lasagna garden that I plant to plant in the Spring too.

    I've got some tomatoes that have sprouted.
    I've managed to get one artichoke plant through the winter in my mudroom. We are in a zone 5. Artichokes don't take the frost. I've been told they are a little more cold hardy once well established. I really hope it blooms this year. It's my son's favorit vegetable and probably the most expensive!

    Spring went missing this year...so I had to plant seeds under lights indoors just to keep from going bonkers.
    Planted artichokes, tomatoes, peppers and eggplant so far. Other stuff will be seeded directly outside if things ever warm up.

    Started tomatoes and peppers indoors this past weekend. Going to plant zucchini & carrots directly in the ground once frost risk is over (which seems like never this winter!). Trying to decide what else we might plant this year - maybe potatoes, spinach or lettuce? I also need to get started on the second garden bed to get it ready.

    Thinking of planting some blueberry bushes as well. We have a hilly area where they might do well.

    I was going to plant last weekend. Thankfully I didn't because it was cold this week. Someone is bringing me a truck load of top soil Saturday, so I am putting in an extra raised bed and filling up the two I already have. I am excited to plant, but I want to make sure all danger of frost is past first. It is hard to be patient this time of year.

    Oh my goodness yes, so hard to wait! We still have at least a month before frost danger is over.

    I have TWO months to go for our official last frost date....but there are seeds growing indoors and some other flowering plants in the garage that are good in cold weather. Waiting is the pits...but there's lots of prep work to do...

    I think I could plant any time now. I am going to wait at least until Saturday. One of the benefits of living in the South

    I'm so jealous! We're at least a month behind last year's planting time....Still have patches of snow. It will happen soon I hope!
