Cleaning more boxes...

Well, it was a gorgeous day yesterday and while the Windshield Doctor fixed chips in my truck windshield (think country... tractors... construction... rocks!)... I pulled and tugged dead garden stuff out of my boxes!

I'm ready to plant some peas now... that's the very next thing I'm going to do outside.

I have to confess though... I'm quite behind the ball on my tomato & pepper starts. Just got seeds planted the other day. Hope they grow fast!!!

Zone 4 here in beautiful northern Wyoming, we typically don't plant tomato & pepper plants outside until Memorial Day weekend or later... so my seedlings have 5 weeks to grow.

I'm so totally NOT organized in my gardening effort this year!

All I can think about is finishing my kitchen & pantry because the cabinet install is scheduled for mid-May! Yeah!!!

Happy Gardening friends!


  1. I'm probably not going to be organized either as I move. My record keeping has gotten pretty bad.

  2. I hope your tomato and peppers germinate quickly and your seedlings grow strong. I wouldn't worry...tomatoes and peppers always seem to catch up once the warmer weather of summer hits.

    Memorial Day is the traditional planting date for warm weather crops here in Maine too. However, last year we had several frosts AFTER Memorial Day that slowed the growth of my tomatoes and peppers. I vowed that I would wait a little longer this year before planting. We will see.

  3. I understand what it's like to get behind in the work to be done - because i'm always behind...I'm sure you'll have plenty of time to get your plants grown.

  4. Hi GrafixMuse, same here... we still have to be careful. Luckily, we can use hoop houses to cover our boxes... during the cold! What zone are you in there in Maine?

    Always hard to wait to plant!!!!

    Hey EG-Thanks! You get behind in work??? Can't imagine it! : )
