Saturday, March 15 I planted Tomato Pepper seeds with some help from my niece. I love planting seeds in my little cow pods. It reminds me that spring is on the way. I live in New York so the spring temperatures have been being a tease. A few days it has been enough to just wear a sweater. It’s a reminder of what is missed. But a day later the temperature drops to 30 degrees and feels colder than it felt in winter. Well no matter how much Old Man Winter is fighting, spring is coming. We have the spring equinox and the snow is melting. Little buds are starting to appear on trees and bushes. I can’t wait to see some color back in the landscape.
If you are wondering I have mostly planted tomato pepper seeds and a few pods of parsley and oregano. The basil from last year is still alive, barely, (it was even a cold winter for the sun room) and I potted it with some new nutritious soil. Most of the other garden plants we purchase from a nursery near us. We plan to plant our usual Big Boy and Beef Steak tomatoes. I know we will continue planting eggplant and cucumbers. The question we always seem to have at the shop is which peppers will be add to the garden this year. Last year was an assortment of green bell peppers like California Wonder or Frying Peppers. A year before that we tried Lady Bell and Jalapeno pepper plants. I can’t wait to see what appears in the cart this year.
Below the picture may just look like dirt filled cow pods but I promise their are seeds hiding. When they start showing their sprouts I’ll make sure to post an update.
