I've been tending to the tomatoes, peppers and broccoli seedlings in our bedroom the past month. Yes, perhaps I was a bit eager with starting them, but I don't mind watching them grow. A little taste of spring perhaps. Spring just can't get here fast enough. Anyway, the tomatoes are really starting to get bigger so I needed to upgrade them a bit from their original peat pellets into larger pots. (Makes me think of that book A Fish Out Of Water). Anyway, I did that this evening outside in shed. So here they are.
My plan is to have 8 tomato plants this season. The seeds I used were from several seasons back so I basically tripled up on each variety of them to be sure that I'd get some successful germination of each.
This weekend I will transfer the peppers to larger pots as well. (I just ran out or I would have done that tonight).
Additionally I ordered Bluecrop highbush blueberry bush and that came in the mail a few weeks back. I put that in the ground a couple weeks ago.
I'm really hoping that I have success with it. I have planted a raspberry bush a few years back and it's being growing like a weed, but yet to give me any fruit. I'm hoping that the blueberry bush will give me some successes as well. I know that I'll have to wait a few years but I don't mind. I enjoy the process.
However, the other day, my 7 year old son was out playing with his friends in the backyard. I guess they didn't see my new planting. (My bad for not putting something around it). Needless to say, it has suffered it's first setback:
I don't know what to say...I hope that it doesn't stress it out too much. I'm hoping I can salvage the broken branch. I put it in a glass of water. Who knows...maybe it will take root. I've had successes like that before.
