It's raining out and windy.
Going down below freezing tonight.
It's late April.
Know what that means ?
It's time to plant some seeds -- inside.
Peat pots, soil, seeds, plastic dome containers, popsicle sticks, pen -- yep got it all.
Among the seeds are tomato, zucchini, cucumber, melon, peppers, nasturtium, eggplant and various flowers.
I've been collecting plastic topped containers that once held muffins, cakes and in one case a fruit tray.
Soil goes into the pots. Seeds go into soil. Water poured over soil and seed. Popsicle sticks note the contents of each pot. Some pots go into plastic containers. Others enjoy a favoured spot on the window sill.
For many gardeners in Canada, the May 24th weekend is traditionally when we plant our tender vegetables and annuals outside. It marks the beginning frost-free nights. Until then the seedlings will need to be nurtured inside.
When is planting time where you live ?
