No pics today, I just haven't taken any good ones as the camera is charging.
Man this weather's crazy! It's warm one minute, then near freezing the next. My plants don't know whether to grow or go dormant. Unfair!
As April 15 is our traditional Last Frost Date around here, I really should be getting my tomatoes out for a walk by now. They need to harden off before they go into the SWCs and become unprotected other than tomato cages. Alas, I'm not happy with the conditions to harden them off, even if they are staked. The wind was so bad today they wouldn't have stood a chance. Not sure that the rest of the week's much better.
I guess what I need to do is to bring them out and shelter them somehow from the wind. Unfortunately that's not even the worst of my problems with my tomatoes. They're so big and entwined in my light system frame that it's going to be a pain in the rear getting them out. I'll water the plants tonight but save tackling the extraction for another day.
Other than that, I'm just waiting for plants to grow, which isn't happening with this wacky weather we're having. There has been signs of life in my beds where I direct sowed various varieties of seeds last week, but it could very well just be weeds popping up. Time will tell.
Lastly, the chicks are entering their gawky teenager phase, so maybe it's good that I don't have pictures of them. Their feathers are discheveled a bit and getting rougher, they're growing taller but not filling in as fast, and they're getting real antsy, wanting to borrow the car, I mean get out of their brooder. I bet next week they'll be moving out to the garage into the potato box I got from Costco. Oh, and that coop sure isn't building itself, hehe.
Yep, I've got my work cut out for me. I hope your garden is keeping you busy!
