I planted 2 flats of tomato seeds today, a flat of "Thumbelina" zinna for my deck-railing flower boxes, a flat with the older gourd seeds from the swap, and another flat with eggplant plus assorted herb and flower seeds... I need to kick my onion plants out to the GH tomorrow, now that we have the heater set up for any overly-low temps, and will plant 2 more flats of mainly flowers tomorrow. Also want to get a few things planted outside -- very rare to be able to do so in Mid April here... carrots, radishes, broccoli, snow peas and kale in the ground, and lettuce in a flower box. I keep feeling like things should be further along by now, but really it is extremely rare that I can even contemplate planting anything outside at this time of year... not that terribly warm, but the snow has been off the garden for a while and it just seems like it's later than it is.

Meanwhile, haven't seen a single sprout in the WS jugs, and have planted a bunch of seeds in vermiculite in big pop bottles a couple of days ago so I'm anxiously awaiting some action there. I'm pretty sure I've never had anywhere near this many seeds planted at this time of year before!! This is going to be a VERY busy gardening year for me Big Yellow Grin
