I couldn't believe it today when I checked the indoor peat pots. I thought they might be drying out (they weren't as the lids and plastic bags caused a lot of condensation), but boy, was I surprised! The cantaloupe and lemon cucumbers are all up. A few Cinderella pumpkins (full size) and Summer Dance cucumbers are up too.
I will bring them in again tonight. The weather is wet, but a lot warmer, even at night. But, to be safe I will go by the book (that would be an actual book, Garden Guide for the Rogue Valley) and keep them indoors until after the last frost date of May 15.
The herb garden is starting to look pretty...
I planted the lavender (in the pot, since it is biggest) and the
rosemary (the highest spot so it can creep and crawl and hang over), as
well as the teeny daffodils I bought at Walmart (Tete-a-tete is what
they are called, and were only .76 a pot, in bloom) and a volunteer
purple pansy. My daughter wants to help with the rest, but she hasn't
gotten a chance yet. This weekend looks good, for her and for the weather which is expected to be sunny.
