The weather this spring in our part of the world has been miserably cool and wet. Nice to spot our first tomatoes in the greenhouse this morning. A little bit of summer in this dark, damp season.
Weather around here this spring has been cool and wet to say the least. But with the greenhouse we built last year we’re growing peppers for the first time. Amazing to watch them grow along with tomatoes, flowers, etc. We’ve been enjoying spinach, lettuce, radishes, peas for months. Life is good. Watch it grow.
In the summer of 2021 I found a packet of seeds. Never heard of Sweet William before let alone grown any. So, threw some in a pot and left them alone. Put the pot in our new greenhouse where the plants thrived over winter. So much so that we divided them into four pots. Spring 2022 we’re now enjoying cut flowers that last for two weeks easy. A beautiful gardening discovery.
This is the first full grow season with our new greenhouse. Decided to try something we’ve never done before: start our hanging petunia baskets from seed. I learned they germinate from light on the surface rather than buried. Today they sprouted! Excited to see how they do. Anyone with petunia experiences they’d care to share?
The pot of geraniums on the left has a persistent guest: a tomato plant. We recycle all our soil so a stray seed must have made it through winter and finally emerged late this summer. Haven’t had the heart to cut it down. Grow, little plant!
