Gardening Update

Carmen asked me a while back how my garden plants were doing. Well we finally got some sun after several gloomy, cold days so yesterday I took all the plants outside to set in the sun. While I had them out there I took a few pics. They aren't the best but they will have to do. The tomato plants don't look very tall in these pictures but they are about 4-5 inches tall. They really seem to have sprouted up just within the past week.
(These are not the first batch of seeds that I planted. The first batch all died so I had to replant again. I don't think they were getting enough sunlight. But this time around I was sure to get them in good light.)
Anyways, it won't be too long before I can begin to plant them in the garden. I'm hoping they get bigger withing the next few weeks. The peppers are the smaller ones and they are SMALL. Not sure why they are taking so long.

In the garden I have already planted potatoes, onions & peas. This is the first year that I have planted peas so I'm not real sure what to expect but I did notice some of the plants beginning to pop through the soil.
We are supposed to have a nice warm & sunny weekend here so I plan to get outside and get the grass cut again and just enjoy the weather.

Mark brought home some new sand for the sand box last night so I know where Katie will be. She'll leave me a trail of sand across the kitchen floor as she comes in the back door. I had to sweep it up last night when she came in and that reminded me of the endless trips in and out last year and all the sand that I swept up. Oh well, she's having fun. She loves to be outdoors & I'd rather see her do that than just sit in the house.

I'm off to bake a bit and figure out something for supper tonight so I'll be back later to visit all of your blogs.
Have a great weekend!

Those look great!We are supposed to have great weather too so I plan on working outside a bit, then we have to put a new liner in our pool as the ice put a hole in our old one this winter!I might even go to home depot and get some mulch and stuff. I miss the sandbox years sometimes but not the mess, lol! Have a great weekend:)

WOW! You are already mowing! We have mainly a rock and "swept" yard. I comfort myself that it's very colonial to have hardly any grass.

Hope your peas grow good! I understand they are delicious right from the garden.
