Our temps have been dropping into the 30’s some nights. Most of the seedlings will do fine as they don’t mind some cold but not my tomatoes. I have been moving them in and out morning and night which is rather a pain but I am hoping for some warmer nights soon and the snow is melting fast so we will be able to access the panels to fix them, which will keep the heat in more efficiently.
Early Girl tomatoes.
I rather over did the Brandywine, I have over 30 seedlings but I will have a plant sale towards planting time which is late May so no waste. I also have the fabulous sauce tomato called Costuluto Genovese, it makes the richest marinara I have ever made. And I have the best oven roasted marinara recipe that is so easy. This is one of 3 tubs of seedlings!
Remember my Delphiniums, here are the seedlings I started a couple weeks ago, I have another batch going. I will have A LOT of English Delphiniums started. I will sell some off when they get bigger along with other specialty plants I grow from seed that you cannot get from the garden centers.
Some of the tomatoes potted up, they are still in a bit of shock in this shot but I have gone out and checked on them again and they are already perking up.
Between potting up chores I have been painting. I had a special order come in and I painted it up for the customer.
They wanted the lettering to be dark blue, though it looks black in the photo.
While I was painting I whipped up a couple vintage looking signs as well.
I need to do a bunch of seafood or beach signs, my stock is low on my website.
And I finally decided on what I wanted to put on that Flowers sign…I added some faded red flowers.
This will go up on the website as well.
Seems we are to be hit with another winter storm, only for one day but anymore snow right now is annoying. It gets in my way. I have some big furniture building and painting plans along with some studio revamping and I can’t really get to it until it stays nice and the snow is melted. Sigh!
May your days be sunny and bright!
