Default Late Again

As usual...I'm way too late again...here it is March 26th and I'm just today getting around to planting my tomatoes and peppers. I know Pumba and Cheyco have probably had theirs in the ground for a month already. Oh well, hopefully I'll get a little fruit before it gets too hot.

I was a few weeks late getting mine started indoors...I'll probably have to buy plants this year. At least I've got 3 weeks to get the beds ready!

The rhizome that BostonBrewin' gave me is sprouting, too...I'm going to have to put it in a pot until the frost danger passes.`

We are still about a month away from being able to plant here.

We had a heavy snow-fall warning last night. Need I say more?
SWMBO and I always by plants as our growing season even with raised beds is way too short, and we don't have the time (4year old and a 5 month old) to dick around with sprouting our own 'maters from seed inside. We've got a good place to grow them, we just need to do it quick!

I was going to plant earlier this year and we got snow in March. Everything is so trashed from the construction, I may not get anything in this year.

When I got mine this time last year, I stuck them in a zip-lock bag with a damp paper towel and stuck them in the fridge. I planted them in late April and they did just fine. Looking forward to seeing how/if they improve this year!

my daughter and I planted tomatoes and herbs a couple of weeks ago (upstate South Carolina) thinking it was just the right time. Well, I got my hops rhizomes in on Saturday and went ahead and planted those then. Wouldn't you know it, end of March and we get two nights of frost???

I covered them all with sheet tents but I still think the tomatoes are goners, the basil too (cilantro looks like it may make it) . . . oh well, they were only a couple bucks each. . .
