Summer arrived early here. We've already had temperatures reach the 90's. (Not so good for sprouts and Pak Choi is bolting already). But, the indoor plants all made it outside including: Green Zebra Tomato, Golden Cherry Tomato, Basil, Tiny Red Sweet Pepper, Pak Choi, Cayenne Pepper, Thai Chili Pepper. Outside starts include Cucumber and Strawberries. The beautiful Peach Water Lily wintered in the basement and the Rosemary and Lavender that wintered inside are out now too. Going outside now are the beautiful Pink Amaryllis bulbs, Vincas. Bulbs for Freesia and Lily of the Valley are starting up outside.

The ever faithful Clematis is back. It has been blooming for over 20 years now. It never fails to please and get compliments.

Cool and foggy today and the plants are loving it.

It has been a really slow start this year due to the cold temperatures. Finally getting some rain which keeps the plants clean... The Pak Choi starts from this past February are getting large. Strawberries are stirring in the fence boxes. The Golden Cherry tomatoes are now hardening off outside in the cool weather. Starts of Green Zebra Tomato, Mini Red Peppers and Basil are waiting in the wings. The beautiful Clematis has started to bloom, a sure sign it's time to plant the tomatoes in the raised bed box. This year Lily of the Valley, Freesia and Coleus plants have been put in the shaded patio and under the Dwarf Bartlett Pear tree.

And now for the show...

I think I hear a collective chorus of "At Last" by Etta James somewhere...
The happy jungle in the living room and Bay window is going gangbusters. The late February and early March sun has got the plants all going. The three Amaryllis bulbs are ready to bloom. They seem to grow overnight... A few of the mini orchids have sprouted new stalks of buds... they just love this angle of light. The indoor garden was supported by two floor standing grow lights during the dark times. More plants like the Vincas, Begonias and Japanese Iris were brought inside this year and are doing well.

The Happy Jungle

On the seed starting side, the Toy Choy and Golden Cherry tomatoes are coming along well in the aero gardens. Mini Red Bell Peppers are starting in another aero garden to be followed by peat pot starts of Heavenly Blue Morning Glory, Moonflowers, Sunflowers Mixed, Cut and Come Again Zinnias...
