8 in. of snow on the ground and 504 seedlings planted :)

Post  milaneyjane on 3/5/2012, 9:29 am

I started my first half of seeds yesterday--504 and counting. What a great feeling with all the snow on the ground. Of course, that meant that last night I spent hours planning this years garden layout instead of getting done my list of house chores, LOL!

This also means it's back to being on the board. I love this group!

Welcome Back!

504 seedlings is quite a lot, especially when that is only half of your seeds started. Congratulations on such a great start.

Who want to do household chores when there is a garden to plan? Not me!

Again, Welcome back.

I'm lucky ,

I've planted out 15 peas that were started off with the veg & flowers on 26 Feb in vermiculite ( 7 & 1/2 days to date ) they were nearly five inches long including the whole root of around 4 inches which was curled around in the old plastic drink cups . I also transplanted 21 garlic from row old style sfg earth enriched beds to ANSFG square foot MM .

Even in the old stuff .....I had to give up trying to get all th roots as they were much longer than the seven or so inches I dug out. Once given a " haircut " I put them in three separate new MM filled square foot beds . In don't see any reason they will not take in the new bed as the moisture 7 temps are ideal ..had to slip a fleece over every thing as we are forceast a sharp frost tonight .

And finally made the SF grids using some spare thin glazing neoprene strip left over from the building of the glass house.

I've also made up a few hanging baskets for flowers and if it's not too cold in the glass house will pot the flowers I've started in MM into the baskets .
