Work to be Done and More to Come

Tuesday, April 21, 2009

Another blog post on the Goff farm... I continue to prep the seedlings for planting in a few weeks. I recently transplanted them from their tiny little peat pots to a larger cup with Miracle Gro soil for an added boost. I usually don't put plants in the ground until Mother's Day weekend, but our beloved meteorologists keep telling us we're done with frosts for the year... but that doesn't mean we're done with cooler nighttime temps. Therefore, my not-so-cold tolerant plants will wait for the day on stage in the garden... tomatoes, peppers, that kind of thing. I do plan to go ahead and plant my greens bed (lettuces, spinach, etc.) and the squashes (butterstick, spaghetti, and zucchini) and cucumbers. I think the broccoli & collards are supposed to do great with cool temps as well. I still haven't found spaghetti squash seeds, lemon boy tomato seeds, and starts for sweet potato in the stores. I may just harvest my own spaghetti squash seeds. And they have lemon boy plants at the STUFFmart... i.e. Walmart. As for sweet potatoes... I've been reading up on that one. I guess you can be quite successful at making your own starts by clipping and soaking sweet potato pieces... worth looking into!

And ever since Easter and the bunny leaving a dress up kit for Grace, we've been having a big time. Grace continues to enjoy getting all dolled up and we've even donned our labrador Zelda as Princess with a tiara a few times... poor dog.
