Well, I know I should have posted my to-do list yesterday, but I was exhausted so I'll get it out today instead of actually accomplishing anything on it.
First off, the weather. Seems to be a popular thing to blog about as spring approaches, but here the groundhog saw his shadow in the puddle so we have 6 more weeks of this...

So, tomorrow's the day to visit the garden it seems, and wear a coat. There will hopefully be some salvagable plants (like the succession lettuce). I haven't seen it in a month, so I hope it isn't dead from lack of water. Mostly however, it will be clearing the dead plants out of the garden in time for replanting.
Another outdoor activity would be to flip the compost pile. I would love to see what's down at the bottom. And I think my kitchen compost bin is about ready to spread onto plants it's been so long under the sink, hehe.
The rest of my weekend will likely be spent indoors as it's too cold and wet to do too much. I really would like to finish my light setup. I have the wood for the base and the shelf, and I have the lights to put together and hang.
However, I still need to buy some seed trays, where do you get them? And I need a timer. Should have one laying around, but can't find it. So I need to pick those things up to complete the setup.
Then I need to figure out how to plant my seeds. I'd hoped to use soil block makers, but I am under strict self-imposed purchasing restrictions so I can't buy it from the Dervaes site. Much as I'd love to.
Lastly, I need to figure out when to plant everything. Thanks all for the links and help to figure it out. I just need to sit down and map it out so I feel better. Now I have the sinking feeling that I'm late, even though I know I'm not.
So, enjoy the weekend, and enjoy your garden!
