May 6, 2013


It would appear that we have gone from The Endless Winter to the  Eternal Monsoon Season.  On the other hand, everything has that bright new green look.  And when it does stop raining, the ground is so saturated  it makes the Spring weeding a  hell of a lot easier.

Warner has finished putting the water stain on the deck and  we have  pretty much arranged the pots.  Last frost date is this Weds., so I’ll start collecting seedlings in the  next few days. Main crop tomatoes, grape tomatoes, Italian parsley (lots), basil.  I have my rosemary, sage and mint.  Am looking for a decent sized thyme.

Pricing stuff  this week I found geraniums locally costing $4-$5 a pop. Ouch.  I did, however, find that Home Depot has smaller plants for $1.95.  Guess where I am going for those…
