March came in like a lion, a snow lion! 

It’s been a very cold windy start to the beginning of the garden season. Right now I have to go to the cellar to get my spring green fix where seedlings are happily growing under the lights.  In another couple of weeks it should be warm enough at night for some of them to move out to the greenhouse where they will really start to take off.  It would be great if they could move out quicker because I need the room for my next round of starts.  Right now I have cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, onions, leeks, lettuce, parsley, thyme, anise hyssop and a half a dozen different flowers residing on a table under 3 shop lights.  Later this week I plan to start peppers and eggplant, then next week it will be flats of tomatoes, basil, and more flowers. 

There is so much to do but it can be hard to get motivated when it is cold and gray, really I don’t think the seeds even want to come out of the packages on a days like this.  The weather man has promised sun by the end of the week so I won’t get too far behind schedule.
Maybe I should go sit under the lights too!
