For some reason, I can just feel spring around the corner. I know it just SNOWED today but I swear I can feel an early spring coming our way. I can't wait!

I love all the green there. There isn't much of it here.
Comment by Angela Higgins on April 18, 2008 at 6:44pm
I want to know what tomatoes are best for:
a) our climate
b) early bloom in our climate
c) mid/late season bloom in our climate

By the way- the basil I got at New Seasons last year (little starts) was amazingly prolific. I am definitely buying there again this year. They performed much better than any nursery basil.

I spent last weekend prepping my garden. Yes, fool that I am, I actually planted some stuff. Shall it survive the return of winter in April?? We shall see...
My garden list:
string beans
and lots and lots and lots of flowers to make my urban garden and oasis this summer...I can't wait!
