Class of 2014: Tomatoes

Today was tomato planting day, inside Walls of Water. We have not had a frost for a week and the 7 day forecast looks mild. This year I have planted one each of Sweet Million, Oromo, Amish Paste, Cosmonaut Volkov, Gypsy, Stupice and two Brandywine.,

I am not happy with the spotty germination of my peas as seen in the second photo. Cascadian at the far end look ok but the near area has Sugar Daddy and less than 50%.

Forsythia, Crocus and Other Signs of Spring

Today is the first day I noticed the yellow starting to show on my forsythia bush. It is such a busy time of year here. My strawberry patch took a hit from the cold over the winter, so today I bought 24 plants to fill in spaces where I pulled out dead dry plants recently. So much to do and so little dry weather to get it done!
