First Day of Spring

First Day of Spring?  Really?!

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, I have to say it again… Winter is sticking around WAY too long this year!  However, I will not be held back from getting a jump start on my gardening season!    Absolutely enjoying my ‘new’ garden shed this year.   (Had the shed for years but it was used for something else until now.)    With the help of a space heater, I’m able to keep the temperature suitable to grow things even with 2-3 feet of snow on the ground and temperatures outside often dropping below freezing.

Added a 2nd set of shelving for seedlings yesterday and already filling it up.   Once things get potted up, I’ll need more room.  Hopefully the timing will work out and I can get things out to the greenhouse before I run out of room.

Note: Got my shelves from Amazon Commercial Chrome Steel Wire Shelves NSF Shelving 48″L x 18″W x 72″H

Planted up two hanging baskets of Black Eyed Susan Vines.  Threw in some Nasturtium seeds too. The basket on the left is doing great but the one on the right is struggling.   Hopefully it recovers soon. Also potted up some Dahlias, Lillies and Siberian Iris’ that I couldn’t resist buying early.

Also have several trays growing under lights in my bedroom!   Could move them out to shed now but sure I’ll need the extra space soon so might as well keep the lights up a little longer.
