 It's spring! Saith the calendar. The weather doesn't say that as clearly. Last snow was... Thursday, with more coming tomorrow. But! There's a whole week with no temperatures forecast below 28 degrees! Close enough for the earliest stuff! Planting out pre-sprouted peas this afternoon, planted spinach and radish seeds, have bunch of transplant greens and pansies still protected indoors.

The "Tomato" Growbox

My 2nd growbox was primarily dedicated to tomatoes - everything else grew around that priority. But, it was still quite cold when the growboxes arrived - indeed, the tomato plants I ordered from Burpee hadn't even arrived yet. And when they did, I still kept them inside, because it was still below 50 degrees every night.

Toy Choi & Flower Cuttings

I planted these right before going on vacation - toy choi (a 5" pak choi) to the left, and cuttings from my Pandora's Box pansy (grown from seed and planted outside) and twinkle phlox (from my English Cottage Garden - my fave of those flowers). To my amazement, this is what they looked like when I got back from vacation - the pansy flowered! These are just shy of two weeks old.
