So excited! Saw two robins yesterday and I have access to this beautiful south facing window at my "sleeping around job" so I have started a huge garden! Someday, I'm going to have greenhouse attached to my house, but this year I am blessed with this wonderful window! Hopefully, it won't get too spindly before we can transplant stuff into the gardens. I have all kinds of lettuces, spinach, swiss chard, kale, kohlrabi, several types of tomatoes, lots of herbs, some luffa gourd ... probably a bunch I'm forgetting! I probably have to much, but that's OK. My elderly client is very impressed with this project and I am planning to plant a few of them around his house this summer. Good therapy for an old farmer!
For the most part, I have used egg cartons for the plants I hope to be able to transplant within a month. The red plastic cups have tomatoes and luffas that I won't put out until later. I also have a few tubs planted with kohlrabi. Grampa Tom has planted it really close together in our raised beds and then transplanted the ones he thins out with a lot of success, so I didn't bother to make separate containers for them. I have a sunlamp that I am using to extend the daylight hours. Hopefully, this will be a success!
What are you doing to prepare for spring?
God Bless You All!
