I have been so busy planting tomatoes into bigger pots today and that sure is heavy work, the new pots are 12 litres/3,17 gallons pots and I have planted at least 15 of those today. Mixing my own soil etc.... but I'm not complaining, I'm loving every minute of it. My body is tender and I think I have to take a soothing bath to heal the soreness in my back and legs. If I'm weak tonight the tomatoes are the opposite, they are very happy and soon I can move them into the greenhouse. Can you imagine my veranda with + 50 tomatoes, chilies and gherkins etc? It is soooo crowded! My non gardening husband will arrive from a business trip late tonight and he is not going to be happy, but he's use to it :-)
The Greenhouse - April and the weather has been great for several weeks now!
The cabbage seedlings are coming on fine, these are the different cabbages what are going into my potager this year.
Brassica oleracea L. ' Bosworth' ( sprouts)
Brassica oleracea L. 'Georgia Southern' (collards)
Brassica oleraea v. capitata rubra 'Red Express'
Brassica oleracea var. acephala sabellica 'Pentland Brigs'
Brassica oleracea var. acephala sabellica 'Red Russian'
and at last the Brassica oleracea var. acephala sabellica ' Nero di Toscana'
and the 'N di T' is not at all tasty but I only grow because I think it is so beautiful.
It is beginning to get quite warm (ish) in the mornings now, consequently I can start to bring out my morning tea into the greenhouse and that is something I really enjoy. Life is good!
Here I'm attending some roses I bought the other day, bargains (of course) from my local store I just couldn't resist them :-) but the pots where much too small so they had to be repotted into larger pots, is that the correct word repotted?
Blooming Friday! This is my contribrutions to the Blooming Friday Flower Power Parade, meet more participant here at Katarina. Roses and Stuff.
Have a great weekend and enjoy the lovely days of spring!
