Update on our garden

The cherry tomatoes poking through the soil.
Our seedling "pots" on the kitchen table.

We have seedlings!!!! :o) Yeah!

Just over a week ago, I got our tomatoes (all three kinds) and our peppers planted. As you can see, I have used re purposed containers (Ie: cottage cheese, yogurt and shortening containers) for planting in. Poke some holes in the bottoms, add in a inch or two or gravel, fill with potting soil and plant according to the package.

We now have 6 cherry tomato sprouts, 6 beef steak tomato sprouts and 2 Roma tomato sprouts (with the promise of more.) We won't be planting all of those. We just don't have the space, unfortunately. We will thin out the smaller sprouts here in a few weeks and only use the biggest, strongest looking ones.

It will be a couple more weeks before we can plant the cucumbers, squash and zucchini and at least a few more days till we see the bell pepper seedlings poking though.

Spring planting is always so exciting! :o)
