Seedling Update

          Despite the fact that our garden area still has some work left before anything's ready to plant, and we are quickly getting tired of spending every evening at the house remodeling, getting ready for farm life must go on.  I had posted earlier about the plants I have started from seed.

          My heirloom Amish Paste Tomatoes are growing like crazy.  So far I have 12 out of 20 that have sprouted through the soil.  Between salsa and regular old tomato sauce, we are huge tomato fans, so hopefully I will have enough tomatoes to can up a winter supply.  I marked the plants that came up first and grew the fastest.  If they produce the best, I'll save my seeds from them.  In addition to tomatoes, the peppers are starting to come up.  Now that they have finally started, they are doing really good.

          The Thyme is still doing great.  This is the first time I have grown this, so I'm still researching how and when to thin and replant.  My lavender seems to be a bust though.  Sniff...  I was really looking forward to having that in pots on the porch. 

          I keep meaning to take pictures and share what I am doing for garden soil and the no weed method, but we finally had some rain so everything is kinda soggy right now.  Great for the yard, bad for pictures.

Update:  Due to a momentary brain lapse, the afore mentioned post about seedlings was only saved and not published.  I have corrected this mistake and am blaming it on spring fever.
