Lets see which does better.

This is where I have them for now. Nice and toasty by the fire. I have to setup my rack and lights within 10 days when they start popping up
In 4 days I see something (bottom right). Rapunzel Tomato. Only 1. Another one started to pop.


Jiffy continuing to impress me. Might do away with MG soon at this rate. Last year tests as well.

Steady temp between 70-72 only. Humidity above 80%

My garden is under there somewhere. Garlic at least. No tilling yet. Weird its taking this long to melt a couple inches in March with full sun. 12F here this morning. Yesterdays max temp was colder than any day in February only getting to 26F.


And now a foot of snow coming on Tuesday. . No tilling till April this year I guess.

Guess I picked a good year to take a break from gardening? lol




Looks like no tilling and gardening this month. Another Arctic blast next week. No 50s in sight.

The dirt I wish I had back from the late 70's. About an acre of veggies from asparagus to zucchini.

Looks like we can start putting things in the ground in about a month, maybe a little sooner. I am about to transplant my tomatoes plants into larger containers and hope I can get them in the ground before we leave the first week of April. As soon as i move them into larger homes I will use the old homes to start the okra. Maybe even some squash.

I posted pics and a video I took from the beach this morning in Norwalk, CT. Check them out.


5 of the Top 10 snowiest March's came after yr 2000 here. It's been hard getting a jump start with the garden beds in recent yrs.


Snowpack is good for the garden but you can get anything ready with this stuff on the ground. I still have 5-6" snow depth

Well the tomato plants have been replanted into larger containers and the okra and squash, as well as dill are now enjoying the old tomato home. Hope they do as well as the tomatoes have done so far. We have our first layer of soil in some of our raised bed containers: plan to do a little work this AM instead of going to church. Now it is just a waiting game until we can start getting our little guys in the ground.
