Gardening 101 Week 10

We survived the snow storm and most of my plants did ok. However I think it’s going to be a failure year for tomatoes. As you remember I’ve already replanted them once (back a number of weeks ago when they were still seedlings) and now 7 of the 11 that I planted have rotted off […]

Planting Day

So I cheated with my planting. I planted my plants on the 16th instead of today on the 17th. Oops. Actually it was a matter of I work on the 17th and it was gorgeous outside and so after church I had some “helpers” and I planted my seeds. One of my helpers had a […]
