Sweet Seedlings

April 20th, 2012

Oh, my kale, spinach and mixed greens have been soooo happy this spring.  They even liked the cool near freezing nights we had.  It makes them sweeter – literally.  It is fun to nibble as I pass by my container gardens when I come home from work and while ‘playing’ outdoors.

My Roma tomato starts look healthy, my butternut squash starts are raising their pretty heads but the melon seeds have yet to emerge from their pots. They like it a little warmer. I love the deep green and the aroma of the dulce basil seedlings.  I have plenty for my own use and plan to share the extras with the Backyard Abundance plant sale on April 28 or maybe the Master Gardener plant sales in my area in May. I hope to pick up some vegies from those sales that I don’t have like cabbage, broccoli, kohlrabi, maybe an eggplant . . .

How will you support the spring plant sales in your neighborhood?
