Tomato Progress Report #3

I’ve got a huge case of spring fever. If only the weather would cooperate so I could get outside and play in the dirt.

Meanwhile, inside my kitchen, the tomatoes are doing well. I had to adjust their perch a bit as they have grown enough that they were almost touching the light.

I transplanted the Four O-Clocks into larger homes this morning; they’re doing very well.

I also moved the basil to a larger Terra Cotta pot. It’s taking it’s time; I’ve never had the best of luck with basil for some reason.

And, using the same newspaper pot process, I started summer and winter squash and a few Forget Me Not flowers. They’re under the dome on the heat mat until they germinate.

To finish off, I tended to the herbs I’ve been overwintering: parsley, oregano, and chocolate mint. I love swishing my hand through the chocolate mint plant–the scent is just heavenly!

I had hoped to get some peas in the ground but that will have to wait until next weekend.

Meanwhile, back at the worm hotel, the worms have settled in nicely. In fact, they’re doing so well we added the second floor of the hotel today.

It’s been a busy, but productive, day.

Now if only the sun would shine so we could get outside and have some REAL spring fun!


I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things and the thin places where faith intersects.
  1. Wonderful Linda! I can’t even begin to think about planting yet. I’m not set up for an indoor growlight so will have to wait for the greenhouse 🙂
    I love your Blog.

    1. Cindy, I have a picture of your greenhouse in the back of my mind all the time! When we retire in a couple of years I may just get one like yours as a gift to myself!

  2. I’m ready to visit the Holland Nursery here in Puyallup to pick up hanging baskets (theirs are AMAZING, and so reasonably priced), but I fear it’s too early. For now we’re enjoying the first hints of spring, eager for the bare naked trees to cloak themselves once again.

    1. Kathleen, I haven’t been to Holland Nursery. Sounds like I should pay them a visit! Isn’t it a blessing to watch spring unfold and reveal her splendor every year?

  3. Oh Linda! Good for you! I gotta say I am just a little envious – just wish I had the space, time and energy to do this. However, watching your blog gives me joy! Thank you!
