Your a step ahead of me jozeeben! it's been so wet, we haven't got started yet on our garden, it's almost to the point now that one can't grow too many cold weather crops here because it goes from winter to summer, and no cool period to grow those colder crops. and We have to wait till the weather clears, then it's too late. I hate that, that's some of my fave food!!

have left over fall planted cole crops and just set out some of my herbs,here in my kitchen door garden. Tomatoes,peppers,eggplants and some more herbs to get out.A 1 or 2 tomatoes here and 2-3 eggplants and will give extras to my neighbors across the road. Not doing a regular garden this year but rather will plant others(squash,cukeszukes,etc) in flowerbeds to cut down on weeding,hoing and watering.

I'm afraid I'll become addicted...LOL.

Back to the subject at hand...I'm going to plant my tomatoes,peppers and eggplants out tomorrow,keep some buckets close in case...or when/if,we get that pre-Easter cold snap. Grew the tomatoes from seed but bought the others and they're getting root bound so really must get them in the ground. Waiting until April to sow seeds for cukes,zukes and squash in the ground.

We've decided not to do a big garden any more because apparently...our thumbs are black and Mother Nature took out a hit on us...LOL
