The last post on the Plant Propagation page had me bemoaning the fact that I had started all those annuals way too early. But now, I'm sooo glad I did!
This May has been as far above average in temps as April was below.
I brought out the basement starts onto the deck on May 1st, brought them into the sunroom only the 1st 2 nights but since then they've been on the deck 24/7.
And they are flourishing. Check out the new banner. There are buds on the Zahara zins. Marigolds are blooming. The still-unidentified annuals from last year's seeds are blooming. The over-wintered geraniums and B&B salvias are thriving (as are the cuttings taken from both).
Tomato & pepper plants are nice and today I'm going to put some cuke seeds into cells to get them going.
There is good potention for frosty/cold nights mid-week so a couple trips to the sunroom will be in order, but otherwise this Spring has been the easiest transition ever from the basement to outside.
I'm looking forward to early plant out of the 3 kinds of zins and the marigolds.
What I'm REALLY looking foward to is some RAIN. May has only given us 1/10" so far. (Michigan is getting all our stuff!)
And all the forecasts for rain all this past weekend has come to naught. The rain barrels are empty. We need at least an inch or two for me to fill those barrels.
How about you? Spring going along as expected? Or more curves for you?
