Spring and the New Garden
Must be getting close to spring. How am I so sure that spring is close? I planted my first seed flats yesterday.
Not much, only 72 cells, all flowers, petunias, pansies snapdragons and some very bright red poppies. Might be a bit early for the snapdragons but the petunias and pansies will need 12 weeks and that puts me to the middle of May. As for the poppies, have had a tough time growing poppies from seed in my beds the last few years. This is my first attempt at starting them in flats. If they get too big I will put them in a pot I can bring in at night.
March 1, I will be starting my tomatoes and onions. I have grown my own onion plants the last few years and I have been very satisfied with the results.
Tonight a good gardening class at the school—yep, spring is near!
