Gardener’s Journal – 3/31/11

OK, so now I’m getting a little frustrated by the weather.. I had been wanting to get out and sow some cold weather plants this week (and last week) – but it has been so cold that I thought it may be a little premature for them to be able to germinate – plus it is going to snow again this weekend! Arrrgh!  I expect soon enough we will be complaining about the warm weather..  I think I’m going to take the extra lettuce seedlings from the cold frame and plant them out in the garden instead of eating them!

On the side of progress, I did manage to sow a good variety of seeds indoors last week – the rest of my tomatoes (4 more varieties – I’m trying out a determinate this year – Marinara – as well as the indeterminate heirloom favorites Amish Paste and Brandywine and Peacevine cherry tomato).  I also sowed some celery, some companion plants – borage, calendula, four o’ clocks, dwarf sunflowers and some herbs – cilantro and summer savory.  I now have two shop lights on and I use christmas lights to provide a little heat to aid germination – seemed to do the trick!
