Well tomorrow's Earth Day, and I'm not ready. The weather's been so cold here that I haven't even taken my seedlings for a walk yet. They're currently overgrown up in the light room, but it's all I can do to let them grow AROUND my lights. I need them out of there so bad!
My tomatoes are so big, they don't need staking as much as they need tomato cages already! I am dreading moving them once, let alone taking them in and out of the garage every day for a week! Actually, I guess after I finish this post, I'll brave moving them to the garage for the evening as the lights will be just about turning off by then. Then tomorrow's supposed to be fairly nice, so I'll put them under the eves in the garden area, fairly well protected from wind and rain.
I'm beginning to wonder if starting them the first of the year was such a good idea? I guess if Mother Nature had cooperated and had any sort of Spring this year, I could have planted them out early and been done with it, but we've had hail, wind, freezing rain and nighttime temps as low as 27 degrees. I call that an extension of Winter rather than Spring. /sigh
I guess I've been hiding out and hiding behind my sick wife as I do everything to take care of the kids and her. I haven't even taken any pictures. I promise I will as I move out the seedlings for the first time, and everything else that happens tomorrow.
Yes, I promise tomorrow will be a productive day. I have called all parties and intend to start the coop construction process! I even hope finally get the girls out of that tiny brooder and into some larger digs.
Hope you are staying warm and are enjoying your garden!
