The coldframe seems to be functioning in keeping the sturdier plants going. We've put strawberry, blueberry, blackberry, columbine, lavender and various other herbs in it.

As for the gardening inside,the two Aerogardens are growing. One has salad greens and arugula planted. We've been enjoying some fresh greens now for a few weeks. The cherry tomatoes are coming along fine and I just spotted the first fruits. I have to be the bee here... moving the foliage around on the tomatoes and blowing on the plants to spread the pollen. These plants usually self pollinate from the winds and air currents outside. The two varieties here are red cherry and yellow cherry tomatoes. I notice the yellow tomatoes are the first to flower and seem to be the hardiest in long term survival rates. I had one of these yellow ones last over a year when planted in a pot outside!!
