Garden update

The seeds I started a while back are coming along quite nicely. Not everything sprouted, just as I suspected. That's fine. The plants that I really wanted did. I'll have to buy a couple small red tomato plants and a couple peppers. Or possibly trade someone for other plants. We'll see...

 I've been wishing for a planter box along the deck. My husband finished it up this past week. We are hopeful that it will produce more on the plants than my old container garden. The cedar lumber and weed block that lines the box cost us nothing, which is awesome! We did have to purchase dirt, of course.
I've been setting my seedlings outside for a few hours a day to get them used to being out in the elements. I've never tried that before but heard that it's a good idea.

I'm going to be really interested to see what colors the petunia seeds produce. I've heard that collected seeds from hybrids don't always produce the color of the parent plant.

Wow, I'm SO impressed. Kiss hubby. I think the box is fantastic. Free lumber is incredible. Way to go.

Beautiful planter you have there and that lovely fresh dirt just waiting for some of your newly 'hatched' seedlings!

I Love seed packets, but in truth never do all that well planting them ... altho I did grow a wonderful Moon Flower vine from seed last year!
The Morning Glory seeds I planted at the same time came to nothing tho ... hit or miss!
You must have a green thumb Halle!
