I planted mint today, one chocolate mint and one that's labelled "Mint Julep".
The latter is like a stronger version of spearmint, but has oval and thicker leaves.
The cherry tomatoes are growing but slowly-it's been chilly here.
One zucchini is up and still in its Jiffy pot.

Mark....Are you sure you didn't start a little too soon...starting your plants? I started some tomato seeds today, and plan on May 1st set out date...and I am a little early starting mine, Tomatoes & peppers should be started 6-8 weeks before set out time. I hope you are going to be able to provide ALOT of light for the next couple of months for all those seedlings. Good Luck!!!

I did that last year. Started my tomatoes and peppers to early. So I was dealing with 3 foot tall plants when it was time to begin hardening them off. What a mess carrying those things in and out of the apartment. Fortunately the tomatoes could be topped when they broke. The peppers did not fair at all well. And the crop was disappointing. But live and learn. I started them at the right time this year and the tomatoes are just a couple of inches high at this point but they are looking good. Very healthy. The peppers haven't come up yet which is fine. I don't have a warming tray so it takes them about 30 days to sprout. But they grow like the dickens after that.

comfrey.. I was afraid about starting too early..

I don't think I'm starting too early, I think I'm setting them out very late... my last frost date is April 15th...

I think I should set them outside sooner.. kissies

Finally shook the dust off my green thumb and went to a new garden store on wednesday, they carry a couple different brands of organic seeds, plus other mfgrs, not cheap by any means but when I saw the often hyped 'brandywine' packet it went into the basket right quick.

Yesterday I made a point of tiring out the kids outside to gaurantee a long nap, after they were taken care of, brought in my collection of potting stuff and searched for pie tins, old tupperware, and a cleaning caddy, to act as water catch basins under the various sized pots. Then came the planting of seeds:

Botanical Interests seeds;
Tomatoes: Brandywine pole, Beefsteak pole, San Marzano, Yellow Pear cherry, Celebrity bush.
Other plants:
California Wonder peppers, Muskmelon jumbo, Broccoli Raab Rapini heirloom, Cauliflower purple heirlooom, Eggplant black beauty.
Fruit plants, some from Holland:
Strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, blueberries-Jersey, Grapes-concord,white,red.

seeds saved from dried fruit/veggies last year, see what comes up this year:
Cantaloupe, Honeydew, Apple-MacIntosh, Plum, Apricot.

I had everything potted, extra stuff put back outside, and was just finishing cleaning the counter/sink in the kitchen when my wife drove up the driveway, whew. Now everything is up in my room where there is window to the east and another to the south so they will get good sunlight, and be around 70-72* by day and lower 60*'s by night.

Forgot to add the whole list of stuff going in the ground outside this weekend; peas, carrots, radishes, chards, asparagus, rutabegas, kohlrabi.

I think that's all for now, what can I grow to help my memory??
