Second Round Seed Starting 2012

Take a second, share with your Friends!

In our part of the planet, we're still about a month away from last average frost date.  We started our second group of seedlings to fill up the rest of the shelves in our "seed starting hot house".  So far our little hot house/green house has been great.  Our first round of seedlings have all taken and thriving.

We planted 3 more trays to fill in the rest of the racks in the hot house/green house: Onions, Jacob's Cattle Beans, Scotia Tomatoes (ya more tomatoes!), Cucumbers, Green/Yellow Beans and Giant Oregon Snow Peas.

With the nice weather announced this week, we're going to take advantage to start prepping the yard and garden.  It's been a very dry Spring and I hope we get cues that Mr. Frost is now gone for good so we can uncover the strawberries, garlic and start to work the garden ;o)  We're also pretty excited to move the starter seeds with greenhouse to the garage to start the hardening process.  It should make a big difference.  A few pictures....

Starter Seeds 2012 Week 3

Take a second, share with your Friends!

Quick picture post on the progress of our little starter seeds.  These seeds were planted on March 24th, 2012... Crappy grainy pics are from my blackberry, but simply wanted to capture how they're making out after 3 weeks.

Weather is starting to warm up, trees are starting to bud and we're getting pretty darn excited to get our hands dirty ;o)

First Seeds of 2012 Popping Up

Take a second, share with your Friends!

Garden Starter Tray 2012It's been 5 days since we started our first batch of seeds for the 2012 garden.  The new little greenhouse seems to be working nicely keeping a nice temperature, but can't wait to get it outside in a month or so to try it out on hardening the transplants.

Was plesantly surprised to see a few things sprouting already.  It's nice to walk into that little greenhouse and smell the fresh soil ;o)  This weekend we'll start the next 3 trays of transplants... so excited!
