Things are happening, a tiny bit at a time

Transplanting and I are not best of friends. I’m bad about properly hardening off. I can tell anyone how to do it, but when it comes down to it myself, I forget. Both to put them outside, and to remember to bring them in at the proper time for that day.

I had a mini-stroke when I was pregnant with my 3rd, I’ll blame that.

So the lettuce did not transplant well, it all died and I planted new, and it’s coming up well. The cabbage is not thrilled with being transplanted, but it is still hanging on. The tomatoes, still inside, are sunburned, but still growing. :lol

In the garden, besides the lettuce, I’ve also got peas, almost all germinated and it’ll be time to thin and get the trellis up very soon. A couple green beans have also popped up. Also, the weeds are doing excellent. It’s already time to get out and weed. Also on the to do list is find the Earth Juice and give everything a good feeding, and someday get the herbs out there.

How’s everyone’s gardening going?

    I’m usually good at getting them outside, but sometimes I’ll be in bed and remember that I left them outside.

    We were sitting on the couch last night and Shala said…

    “Did you bring in the plants?”

    “Nope, did you?”

    I am so awful at remembering to bring the plants in. Hardening off really becomes “freezing them until they die.”

    It’s still cold here in Connecticut, but peas are germinating. Time to get a few other things started.
