today's garden work
A perfect spring transplanting day. Cloudy and 60's.
I transplanted to my home garden: 8 tomato seedlings, 3 rows of lettuce, 1 row parsley and 1 big planter of herbs (parsley, thyme and orange cosmos). My peas planted couple weeks ago are up and I filled in the empty spaces with more seeds (Sugar Sprint, Cascadian, Wando and Tall Telephone). Also planted Purple Podded Capucijner soup peas. I transplanted my lavender sprouts (only four) to an outdoor pot. I moved my alpine strawberries to a sunnier location, dividing one original plant (about 5 years old) into five plants. I moved 3 peonies to sun also. And I sowed a pot full of dill seeds.
Lots more seedlings are waiting for transplanting over the next week or so. I love the big fat leaves of the winter squashes. And the blue leaves of the broccolis.
