It's been a slow week. Everyone's had the stomach flu which is enough to put the breaks on everything. I did finally feel good enough to get out of the house today. The first place I went was to the nursery to get onion sets (somehow I managed to not start enough from seed - how did that happen?!) so to fill up those designated spaces - onion sets it is. Mmmm. I love onions. I also picked up some seed taters. Blue ones and gold ones. (How's that for specifics?!) Okay Yukon Golds - pretty standard and I think the blue one's were called All Blue or something pretty generic. We'll see how they fare against the one's I started from seed.
This week or early next I need to start hardening off some of my seedlings. I also get to plunk a few things right into the garden beds (my favorite!) Peas please! ...and radishes (one of the four veggies DH will eat - go figure) plus time for a second round of lettuce (to start under lights). This time a butter type instead of loose leaf. Yummers. Spring salad i eagerly await thee!
Oh speaking of actual garden beds, my spinach is looking spritely! The poor, poor little pepper plant out in the freezing garden however, I don't think is going to make it. It's all wilted and pathetic. Ah well... I'm also worried about the bell peppers inside too. I don't know what's wrong with them but they're turning purple again. I don't think peppers like me. The light hasn't changed the temp hasn't changed. I did repot them and gave them a *sparse* amount of fertilizer. I hope I didn't stress them out too much. 0.o I'll have to examine that situation more closely and report back here. (Peppers from seed are new for me -- can you tell?!)
