it's that time again...

I've been feeling a bit panicked that I haven't done anything for/in the garden yet...especially since the seeds I ordered still have not arrived. Plus after looking closer at my order, I've realized they probably won't be arriving any time soon. :/ So today, I played catch-up & started some seeds indoors & out in the beds.

This year, I moved the growing station in from the garage to the laundry room. It just wasn't warm enough in the garage last year & resulted in very little growth. I'm only starting tomatoes & peppers indoors so far & hope to plant most other seeds straight in the ground.

Since I'm still waiting on my seed order, I used seeds that I ordered last year & am also using seeds that I saved from my home grown tomatoes & peppers. This is a first for me & definitely an experiment, so we shall see!

Outside, I planted some broccoli, lettuce & carrots. We are in the process of building more raised beds, which will double our garden space! Hoping for much more produce to preserve, come fall. :) I can't believe we're already into Spring - it totally snuck up on me this year!

Woowho!!! I started tomato and peppers inside too and the rest are in my cold frame. I will be planting a lot more directly in the garden next month too.

Keep us posted on your experiment of planting your own harvested tomato seeds! What fun that would be!! I hope they all grow well for you.

Take care!
