I couldn't wait...

My tomatoes were just too big for the spot I had them in the basement, and with forecasts for nighttime lows in the 50's for the next week I went ahead and did it. I know they will just kind of sit there for a few weeks, but at least now I can stop watering them twice a day.

The gardens are nearly fully planted out now. Lettuce, carrots, parsnips, garlic, tomatoes all up and growing. Peppers will go in the first week of May.

You could just hear everything growing today.

You'll be eating tomatoes in July, I'll bet! What kinds do well for you?

My favorite is probably sungold, which produces amazing numbers of some of the sweetest tomatoes I've ever tasted. I'll be growing a mix of black, orange, and red heirloom tomatoes.

This rain is just fantastic.
