It's almost time....
I even found several healthy looking worms, which thrilled me.
(I'm easily excited)
They look good. I hope they bulb up. I just read that if you choose a variety that's not locally grown, they may not bulb up. Who knows where my grocery store variety came from.
I also removed the mulch from the cilantro seedlings I had sown last fall and replaced it with a layer of compost.
I then bent some old flower supports into hoops and covered the cilantro with floating row cover. They are tender little seedlings and I don't want them to freeze.
Note to self - buy some ground staples. (Although the copper pipe withstood the wind and driving rain two nights later.)
Lastly I emptied the dirt from the antique cement planter in the middle and replaced it with fresh potting soil. I then covered it with plastic to warm the soil so I can plant sooner. I am going to seed Nasturtiums in there this spring.
So now we are ready for Spring. I keep changing my plans on where to put things so I can't share that with you yet. Just check back and see what's growing!
