This blog is going to be my gardening journal.... It will give me a place to write about my gardens, keep links to favorite related websites, and share photos with you!
It's the end of March, and unusually cold for this time of year here in southwestern Virginia!! Brrr!! I'm trying to figure out when the last expected frost date is in my area. From what I can tell, it's April 29. One website said April 15th... But, i'm not putting my tomatoes out until at LEAST the 29th of April! lol
This year, i'm starting seeds indoors for the first time. And, well, so far it's going great! I have some watermelon and pie pumpkin plants that are getting huge! Also have some cabbage plants sprouting, as well as Jubilee tomato, and some other varieties of tomato.... Can't remember for sure which varieties I planted? Hmmm... I think I planted grape tomatoes, Brandywine, cherry tomato... I think that was it? I love tomatoes! I plan to start some more varieties in the next few days. I have a couple mixed packets, one is heirloom variety and the other is rainbow variety.. Then I have a packet of yellow pear tomato from last year. Which, I was happy to find in a bag a few days ago.....since NOWHERE seems to have yellow pear tomato seed this year!!
I am somewhat new to veggie gardening. Not so new to gardening in general.. I have roses in my garden, lilies, hosta, daisies, strawberries, golden moneywort.. Roses are by FAR my favorite!
Anyway, will post more another times.. As well as share photos of the gardens. Thanks for stopping in! :)
