From commentor Satsby:
Northerners like us are getting serious spring yearnings. I should have waited a couple more weeks, but I needed to start something 2 weeks ago during another polar vortex so I just started tomato and bell pepper seeds. Only the tomatoes came up, and to keep them from damping off I took them out from under the dome yesterday. I’ll just buy bell pepper plants.
Another cold snap is predicted here for a few more days. These will be a good size by the time I transplant them 8 weeks from now!
We’re getting the worst of a New England spring here, unremitting drizzle on the dank ugly remnants of last fall’s leaves and winter’s detritus. Even the daffodils and the Siberian irises haven’t budded, and some years they bloom in mid-February…
On a more positive note, I’ve got another long essay from MaryG & Higgs Bosuns Mate, so for today’s special there will be a West Coast Sunday Morning Garden Chat later this EDT afternoon!
What’s going on in your gardens this week?
