Spring Has Sprung
March 21, 2010 § 4 Comments
Spring is here. Anyone have a fever? I didn’t have a cowbell so I opted for planting trees and tomatoes instead. One would think after having a hectic week that I”d just take the weekend to relax. But noooooo. I just had to go out and dig holes and plant stuff all weekend long along with all the other usual weekend chores. And this not-so-Spring-chicken body is paying for it.
It started off with planting a semi-dwarf grapefuit tree and relocating some Lily of the Niles. Boy those lilies are hardy. Then the next day, I started on my tomatoe patch. I had contemplated on building a raised planter box but decided to just go with the pots this year. Getting the material and then building it would have taken me most of the weekend and I really wanted to get these babies planted.
Most of the plants below are tomatoes but there’s a Thai chili plant and an heirloom yellow bell peppers thrown in the mix too. Now counting down the days to first harvest (about 65-70 day). I can’t wait for some of the heirlooms.
Four more trees to plant next weekend but I should be recovered by then, hehe. Still waiting are semi-dwarf Bearss lime, Sanguinello Blood Orange, McDill White Sapote and a Washington Navel.
Whew, I’m getting tired again just thinking about all the holes I have to dig. Hope everyone had a great weekend!
