Thanks. I love growing veggies. I'm hoping I'll have enough tomatoes to freeze and can lots for the winter. I just can't eat those things they sell at the supermarket. They're not tomatoes.

Hello, paperhouse, glad you could join us!

Yeah, I used to grow in the South, practically year-round with row covers, but now that I can't transplant until MAY in NE, I didn't want to get started too early... Reckon I'll be transplanting to those cups in abt two weeks at the rate these babies are going! It's only been a WEEK and a half since I put the seeds in the pots!

I call the ones in the store 'anemic tomatoes'. I can't wait to savor the first tomatoes of the season. Next house I want to build a little greenhouse so I can start earlier.

Yep. I love a tomato, a knife, and a salt shaker in the middle of the garden in summer. I can't grow asparagus. It would never make it to the kitchen.

The hoophouse is great for starting seeds and overwintering some perennials. Even when the temperatures were down in the single digits, the inside was above freezing if it was sunny. This time of year, I have to keep it open on both ends. Next week I'll be removing the plastic completely and using only the bedsheet I have there for some shade. I would like to think the seedlings can handle full sun, but I'm nervous about them as this is my first time growing zinnias and other annuals from seed.

Shoot I don't *need* the knife and the salt is just a bonus if I have it.

I came across this simple kitchen garden designer while looking for solar accessories for my garden. A great planner and idea for people new to gardening who want to know what to plant, when to plant it and how to arrange it.

We are getting our onions in this weekend, so I am prepping the beds tonight. I cannot wait for the good weather to be here and the chance of more snow to be over!

I love zinnias! I haven't grown them in several years, but I have a few seed packets for this year.
