Hi, I'm new!

artistmama_leslie(8)January 25, 2010

Years ago I was a member of Gardenweb. I read a lot but didn't post- I learned a LOT! I hope to meet some of you fellow Alabamians online, and learn even more from you.

Today's beautiful day is making me long for warmer weather! I'm about to start my tomatoe, pepper and basil seeds indoors as soon as I can pick up some seed starting flats and growing mix. Are any of you starting any summer vegetables yet? I can't wait! :)

Welcome, Leslie. How I envy your artistic talents. When I retire I'm going to take some art classes. - Terry

Welcome Leslie! WOW home school... my hat is off to you. I have started several plants over the winter but no veggies here sorry. I am sure others have though.

Looking forward to hearing more from you. - Peggy

I'm not starting warm season seeds like tomato or eggplant until the beginning
of March at earliest. That is plenty early, since they have to be grown under good bright light and grow several inches in a month , but isn't much good to plant them outside until the ground warms up good, like in May. And we have had some late cold snaps for people who can't wait and try to plant early in April.

Welcome. You're quite a good artist. I note that you haven't posted any new pictures for a while. Are you still doing any paintings?

I'm apparently north of you in zone 7-7a. Our Master Gardeners assoc. has a couple of greenhouses and a big plant sale in April with lots of vegetables. We'll be starting the pepper seeds in another week or two, but won't start the tomatoes for several weeks. We don't put them outside at all, so don't have to worry about late freezes.

Happy gardening.
