Busy busy busy

With the coming of spring and warmer weather, I have been so busy! Repotting wandering jew, spider plants, african violets, etc. The lettuce is doing great, and all the houseplants love the sun. I repotted oregano into a strawberry pot.. I should take a picture, its going to look great once it settles in. 

My Caladium bulbs did rot, though.. that'll teach me for getting them at Wal-mart. 

Tomorrow I will be planting my morning glory seedlings and leveling out the garden to get ready for planting. 

Stay tuned for a picture post soon!!

Awwww

I had 2 beautiful amaryllis bulbs.. and after the leaves were dead I put them in a cool space in the basement. This was last fall. I just checked on them, and both were rotted. I guess thats a lesson to take the bulb out of the pot before you store it for dormancy.

I just put 12 caladium tubers down, in 3 seperate pots. They are all assorted colors, so it should be neat to see what comes up.

The houseplants are loving it outside! I moved the cacti out front today in a shaded area, they should like that.

The lettuce is coming up.. we should have plenty of it!

More seeds!

Last night I went by Home Depot.. again.

I got more lettuce seeds, which I sowed in a window box this morning. I also got some statice and painted daisy seeds, which are down stairs in their little dixie cups waiting to germinate. I also got some mammoth sunflower seeds to do this year.. last year they went down in flames when my Dad decided to dig a pond, and they happened to be RIGHT in the way. Luckily they were just babies, so no love lost. I figure this year he can't dig any more ponds, or else we will run out of back yard. So they ought to be safe.

The morning glories and cukes have already germinated, along with the broccoli. Fast little buggers, eh?

And I have a Christmas cactus in full bloom. I guess they really like the green room! Someone should fill him in that its.. April. Not Christmas. But as long as he's a happy little plant, then I am happy too.

Lettuce, herbs

Today I sowed some lettuce seeds in a windowbox on the deck. I look forward to seeing how they do.

Yesterday I also went out and got some seeds — green beans, cukes, butterfly weed, etc.

Seeds down

The plant room looks really empty now.. mainly my African Violets. I think Im gonna take advantage of this space and put a large number of leaves down.

 I also sowed some seeds.. 2 packs of Columbine, 3 different types of morning glories (Picotee Blue, Dwarf Blue Ensign, and Flying Saucer), and a different brand of cactus seed.. Im gonna see if there are any other varieties.

 The plants seem to love it outside, and its supposed to rain, which will be good for them.

WOOOOHOO!!

It's that time of year again! When I should be working on papers and studying for finals, I am carrying houseplants and resting plants out of the basement and outside. I am putting them for now under some cover, and watering my mini roses and houseplants, giving everyone a good drenching. The plant room looks empty now, with some cacti and my african violets.

Ill post pictures soon! It feels so good outside. I think its time to start my veggies and flowers!
