Finally good garden weather. Damp days are not good for gardening and can spread various bacteria, virus, molds and fungus around. Dry with rain at night is the best after the sun is up and things dry out. More fencing is needed as animals displaced are foraging in backyards and gardens. With a close view of the World Trade Center we have skunks (love digging bulbs and for bugs), racoons (love tearing up the tub gardens looking for clams, crayfish, etc), squirrels (love burying things like dinner rolls in pots and boxes), ground hogs, (love chewing the tender tops off sunflowers and other flowers...) and and various birds (love pecking fruits like pears, peaches and apricot so they fall to the ground useless).

It's a wonder anything survives at all... Here are a few views of what's going on.

The cold is still hanging on here but plants are starting inside...

These little purple peppers are slow to start the heat but hot after a few seconds. They, like the Golden Cherry tomatoes, are in a Sprout Aerogarden. They both will be transplanted outside into pots when the weather gets warm enought.

Using the Aerogarden for seed starting. The light is more regular than the window with peat pots... So the proof will be getting these out of the garden and into boxes or the ground.

Have been harvesting these delicious little Yellow Cherry Tomatoes. Still waiting on the little peppers in the AeroGardens. We are going to try to use the Aero Gardens for seed starting this year. Sometimes there is not sufficient light for the little sprouts so this is going to be an experiment.

Have posted under Garden Give Away a link on the Home Page to a gardening Ap from Territorial Seed Company for your phone. It's free to try and you can take it with you in the garden!

There is always something growin' on here even in the winter. The bay window is going full tilt with plants craning their necks for light which is starting to last longer. The golden cherry tomatoes and cayenne peppers are coming along in the led light Aerogardens. Some quibble with the "taste" but I think with the nutrient they are just fine maybe better than some soil.
