I know it's waaay to early to even be thinking about this, but I really want to put my tomato plants in the ground. Now. I don't want to wait 'till May 15th. I want to plant them now. Insert hissy-fit here. It was a high of 70 today, and it just feels right to be planting things.
On a brighter note, it looks like my daffodils are forming heads! I also went around and watered my mint and strawberries, which are in pots that stay outside. They seem to have over-wintered nicely. Because of this website, it seems that I'm becoming more and more of a successful gardener! Keep the advice coming!

I know it's not much, but I am so excited that I was able to go out to the herb garden and get a few onion greens and a couple handfulls of parsley when I was making supper tonight. We had Fettuccini Turkey Alfredo and those fresh green things just hit the spot! I can't wait to get the rest of my garden in!
I had to start over on a few of my seeds because I had so many other seedlings in my worm dirt. I decided to try something new. I cut toilet paper rolls in half and put them on a plate. I filled them with dirt, watered them, and added seeds. We'll see how this goeas.
It's been a cold, hard winter, and now my daffodills are peeking out of the ground! I'm so excited. They look a little light-deprived, but they're tough. They'll come back from this winter just like the rest of us have. I love having daffodills and tulips in my garden because in my mind that's proof that spring is back and strong.

I have worms that compost for me. I use it like an indoor compost pile. I unwittingly added bell pepper and celebrity tomato seeds as I used the vegetables over the year. I used my worm dirt to plant my seedlings. I planted two seeds in each pod. I have 10-15 plants in each pod. I planted sweet 100's in 2 of them, how do I know which one is the sweet 100? I planted 4 hot peppers. How do I know which is the hot pepprs? I'm so frustrated I could spit fire.
