Dios mio. The plants are taking over the living room, and the dining room, and any other usable window space. The greenhouse and raised beds will be ready this week, so the crucifers, squash and other veggies will soon have a new home, but what am I going to do about these 40 tomato plants? (they aren't ever happy in the greenhouse, it's a little to chilly in there)
I guess they will just live in the house with us, and that's fine with me as long as they are making tomatoes.
I am especially excited about my flowers this year. The calendula already have buds! Call me weird, but I love the potent medicinal smell of calendula, and they just look so hearty and robust.
It sure is nice to come home to some green living things. Hawaii was so lush, and even though the weather is lovely here, it is a little early for everything to be good and green yet. If you look really close you can see some signs of spring on the tundra, but it is still very subtle. Unlike these beefy summer squash. Nothing subtle about those. Booyah!
Can you tell I'm excited about my garden this year? I'm also excited about 5 feathered, egg-laying ladies who are about to join our menagerie tomorrow... More about that soon....
