The rain has cleared out for a while, and I managed to catch enough rainwater to water for a while if necessary. When the sun came out this afternoon, I knew I had to get in the garden and plant! I planted some squash seedlings (mixed varieties), and some Better Boy Tomatoes and Sweet Banana Peppers i couldn't resist buying even though i have my own seedlings! We'll see whose do better, theirs or mine! Theirs are a bit more mature, and I can never stand the wait to get a fresh tomato or banana pepper! I also planted some Kentucky Wonder pole beans, and some MORNING GLORIES to round things off. And another thing, the gloves never stay on, does anyone else have that problem?! I love the feel of the soil.....the only thing I regret is having to dig the dirt out from under the nails! LOL! More later, happy gardening!

The babies are up! Baby basils of the lime, genovese and lettuce leaf varieties! Also some morning glories and cyprus vines are up....hopefully soon we'll have strawberry gomphrema and lavender as well. I've decided my greenhouse is defintely too small! I need much more room for all I need to start, or i'll just have to give it up! (yea whoever heard of a plant fiend giving up? LOL!) The rosemarys are doing well, seemed to have rooted (most of them). Now I need to start some moss curly parsley, oregano, dill, cilantro, to name a few. Market will be here before I know it! I think I shall go see if i can find a bigger greenhouse....i'll let you know the outcome! Have an herby day! deb
