Starting seeds makes me feel a bit less like a garden slacker. I know, I should have been doing it all along, but actually doing it counts.

So today, I used my new Haws can

to water in:
Drunken Woman Frizzy Head lettuce
Tom Thumb lettuce
Merlot lettuce
Territorial Seed's Heirloom Blend lettuce
a romaine whose name escapes me
Lacinato kale
Red Russian kale
Breadseed poppy
Bloomsdale Long Standing spinach
Monstreux de Viroflay spinach
Hibiscus for tea
Italian flat-leaf parseley

Seems like a long list for only three flats. The pepper cuttings are hanging in there, so not obviously dead at least.

Before I start any more seeds, I'm going to have to either repair or replace the light fixtures and get new bulbs.

How I envy your warm weather...peppers wouldn't even stand a chance where I live!

Hey, Zach, you're back! My peppers look pretty sad right now. It's been so very very cold. But you're right -- some will overwinter, even so. We have a lot to be grateful for.

Fantastic! You got the watering can you needed. Great start to another season.

Kristin, I can hardly have any excuse with this can, no? (Now I'm wondering if they sell a mini-rose, for small spaces.)

Nice watering can! I have some seedlings hardening off in the greenhouse (unheated) and am planning to transplant them today. I will be starting some more greens in the next week as well so that they are ready to go into the very early garden with protection. I am ready for more fresh fare - we really use our storedm, frozen, and canned items during the winter months but the fresh garden harvests are the best.

kitsapFG, you are definitely more organized than I am!! It's feast or famine here, and I don't have weather as an excuse. Thanks for stopping by.
