Spring is Here!

I’ve been spending tons of time outdoors, getting the garden ready for summer. I also transplanted lots of celery starts today — hope they survive the treatment. And my napa cabbage is doing so well I had to thin it today. I can hardly believe I have to keep it indoors until the seedlings are 6 weeks old, but I am trying very hard this year not to do things too early — I lose too many starts that way, trusting the weather to hold, and it never does here in Idaho in the spring.

  1. I hope you are right. Our den is overflowing with plants yearning to get outside.

  2. I love gardening! I used to have huge issues getting my plants acclimated to the outside. I have to force myself to take things a lot slower (for them) than I want to and I have not lost a plant again! Our little plants are about 3 inches tall now and I still have until mid May before I can start moving them out in the day and another week after that before they can camp out outside over night. (STIR CRAZY!)

    Enjoy your gardening!!
