Garden Prep

It’s almost that time of year again!

Back in January, I started seeds for tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, and okra.


The okra died. I restarted them a few weeks ago and they seem much happier.

Today, the garden is a sad dried out, over-grown and gone-to-seed collection.


The peppers had seed leaves by the end of January.


But the tomatoes, despite being planted several weeks later, have completely overtaken the peppers in terms of growth.


Just a bit of labor to harvest the remaining bits (yay beets!), then we turn the beds, add compost, fertilize, and it will be a welcome home to all of the seedlings that are thrilled at this weekend’s blazing sun.

Hurray for the coming summer garden!
