Default Waiting for warmer weather

Today I started 160 tomato seeds. I have them inside to germinate
since I don't feel like keeping the heat high enough in the greenhouse
for germination. Right now I have over 400 seedlings in the
greenhouse waiting for slightly warmer weather. I have onions,
cabbage, broccoli, broccoli rabe, beets, chard and rhubarb. There are
also a few lettuce seedlings. I have had very poor germination with
lettuce except for my red romaine.

My next project is to plan the garden layout. And then do a second
till to try to get the soil usable for beets. Then I will plant some
peas and lentils.

Anyone else have anything going on now?

Default Waiting for warmer weather

I've been buying seeds like mad, now I get to plant them all...I have
probably 20 (peat or mini plastic ones)pots in my room right now, and I've
started preparing where I will plant roses, and today I've got to start some
flowers, herbs, ground cherries, garlic, onion, and um...forget what
else...I've also got to build a raised bed frame for peas/beans.

My tomato and pepper seedlings are almost big enough to go outside now! (I
live in zone 8 or 9.) I've planted lettuce, spinach, onions, and carrots
outside. The cutest thing is that this winter I changed the placement of my
raised beds, adding permanent wood boxes over where the old beds used to be,
and the other day I discovered a crooked row of garlic I had planted and
missed last year, now growing in one of the pathways between boxes! It's
getting walked on, but it still looks pretty good.

I have 2 dozen tomato, pepper and eggplants started in my greenhouse.
They'er up and growing well. I keep the seed flats in the warm sunroom
until germination is almost complete, then move them to the heated GH. Most
veggies are planted right in the ground here in middle TN. I can most and
freeze some.

Scratch getting the ground prepared. It has rained for 3 days. But
since we are in a pretty severe drought, I am thankful for the rain.
It will probably be another 2 weeks before I can start setting out
plants and seeds.

Think I will see if I can get out to the greenhouse to check on the
seedlings there.

Started a few dozen brassicas (and inadvertantly started eggplants) back on
Jan 16. The Brocc. Cabb. and Bussel Spts will be going into the ground
around St. Pats day under a polytunnel if need be, the frame work is up
already.
Here in zone 7 (if last year was any indication) i wont be putting the more
delicate tomatoes eggplants etc.out until the end of May beginning of June
even though the last frost date is Apr. 14 its just to cold at night to risk
losing these.
Seems like I've got to slow them down by keeping them in a cooler area or I
will have to repot these in March.
Susan you didnt mention what area u are in, it could help the newbies like
me gauge when to plant.

I'm watching the snow melt - well not today. When the night temps stay out
of the single digits (or below 0) for a week - will think that spring is
finally on the verge of breaking out.

Have the packages dated for starting - tomatoes, Melons, Brussels Sprouts,
marigolds, stqrflowers, shallots, dahlias.

I am in the Piedmont (foothills of the Blue ridge mountains) area of
North Carolina. It is also zone 7. You must live near the coast.

I am going to put out the cold weather plants as soon as I can work
the soil. It has rained or snowed for the past 3 days so it may take
a while for the ground to dry enough so that I don't sink up to my
ankles. I usually set out tomatoes after April 15. Eggplant and
peppers go out a couple of weeks later.

Yes i am near the coast in the Southern Part of the state Zone 7a to be
exact but I do have microclimates on my property ranging from 6 to 8. Most
of NY state is 6/5 going all the way down to zone 3 near Canada.

That's me - nominally in Zone 4 but consider myself in Zone 3. Waiting for
the snow to melt in northern New York - just east of the eastern end of Lake
Ontario.
