Not literally, but they are late. I sowed the tomatoes a month ago and ran out of steam/time/hands. “Next weekend,” I promised. It passed. “Next weekend,” I repeated. Again, it passed. A month late now, but they’re sown and heated and moist. Bells and jalapenos, fish and five color, poblano and (if I can find my seeds) gypsies.
The tomatoes are already looking to move. The strawberries, too. I think it’s time to buckle down and build a second grow light.
And sow some peas! I’m ever so excited. I missed the fall window so we haven’t had garden snacks (aka peas) in ages.
Speaking of changing lodging, I do believe the paper whites are moving off of the kitchen window sill and into the out of doors. The neighbors’ bedded ones seemed much happier than mine.
Great headline! Enjoy your indoor gardening. . .
Thanks! The peas just went in outside so with any luck soon I’ll have more sprouts than I remember to water…er…
Tomatoes a month ago??!!!?! Envious you’ll be eating new flavors much earlier than me! I don’t seed mine until late February, they won’t go out until April. We decided to just buy a few pepper starts this year. I only grow a few, and it didn’t seem like it made sense to dedicate the grow light space.
If the forecast cooperates, tomatoes go out March 8th here. There are too many pretty pepper options in seed land for me to resist (seed acquisition disorder!) But last year I did end up with starts because I forgot the poor things in the guest room for too long…
Your blog is looking pretty nice! love your header:-) I just have kale and that is slowing down and nothing much else out there but dead stuff. For us they said spring early this year-March-I can hardly wait. enjoyed reading about your adventures in warm Texas-well-compared to us:-)
Thank you! I miss commenting on your posts but still so enjoy reading each one each week 🙂
Paperwhites do great in the ground in our warmer winter season. No need to ‘force’ anything over here! I may just put tomatoes in the ground now.
I’m so tempted to put my tomatoes in! It’s 73 and lovely (and has been for days.)
