Whew! I just finished re-potting my seedlings. I re-potted about 75 plants. The tomatoes smelled really good! I have too many bell peppers this year, so I need to call a few friends to come over and take them away! Hopefully next week I can get the peas, onions, spinach and such into the ground. It's been so cold here, 20-25 at night and 40-45 during the day. But the snow has stopped for now!

I have a question for all you more experienced gardeners. My seedlings of broccoli & cauliflower sprouted one week after sow and now another week later. How long should I expect before transplant them into my raised bed? My concern is that if it takes 6~8 weeks, it maybe too hot in June for broccoli & cauliflower to grow? I am in zone 7a.

Thanks.

I'm in 6b/7a and broccoli is out now. Did you sow the seeds indoors? Harden them off Bracing Up: Hardening Off Transplants | Garden Guides and put them out soon. It can get really hot in June and you may have a problem. Keep them mulched, watered and cross your fingers.

Oh but your waistline looks so much better than Santa's.

HB2HSV I agree with Gerania the sooner you can get them out do it.

Let us know what grows out of that egg, will you? This could start a new wave of gardening...

I got an egg for my Mom for Easter that will grow a pansy out of it. Lowes had them! It was too cute to pass up for gardening buffs like us who also love Easter!

That's so funny (yes, and cute). I wouldn't have been able to pass it up either.

The veggies we have planted so far seem to be doing quite well. The beans are really growing. Once stuff grows a bit more and we have everything planted I'll take some pictures.

So, something is eating our strawberry fruits off the plants. My fil says he thinks it's slugs and to get snail bait. I'll have to look for that at the store.

For the slugs you may like to try lager, beer, or maybe bitter in a small tub or glass.
All you do with this, is sink it in the soil almost down to soil level near to your plants.
The slugs and snails are attracted to the smell, they go and have a drink, get drunk, and fall in and drown while inebriated.
You could cover it with a small slab or saucer on a few stones to save small animals such as Toads or Frogs from falling in accidentally, both of which are beneficial in the garden.
