The tomato seedlings are doing good. So far so good. In the past we haven’t done well with seedlings and have had to use already established plants from our local nursery. There isn’t anything wrong with that except it’s not as cost effective as starting your own. In a mode of uncertainty I planted extra thinking that if some died off then we still had a chance. Looking at them now, if all of these seedlings make it we are going to be up to our ears in tomatoes this year.
I ordered our seeds from Burpee this year and I got all organic and some heirloom varieties. I got roma, san marzano, heirloom slicers, and black cherry tomato seeds. I’m especially excited about the black cherry tomatoes.
If I’m being honest, I have to admit that in years past I’ve been guilty of not enjoying our gardens. I get so wrapped up in the process of canning and putting up the harvest that I forget to enjoy the seasons of fresh picked, sun kissed, sweet vegetables. Not this year. While I still intend to put up the harvest, more importantly I plan to enjoy all the fruits of the Z Man’s labors to the fullest all summer long, and I can’t wait!
This weekend we planned the layout of the garden and we’ll start putting stuff in the ground this week.
Oh, and on another exciting note we ordered our two piglets this weekend too. They were just born 4 days ago so it’ll be a bit before we get them. I love this time of year and just love our life. 🙂
Have a great day!
Till Next Time,
