Up and coming vegies

It’s been a few weeks since I started my seedlings and boy, are they starting to get big.

They are almost up to my window sill. I did have about three types of seeds that didn’t seem to take at all, so I emptied the pots and started over with them. Hopefully they weren’t dud seed packets. We’ll see in a about a week.

For the area that I live in, the hard frost date is somewhere around late April to mid-May, so I really don’t feel I should be taking these outdoors yet. Especially considering we had seven inches of snow just about two weeks ago. Although the Farmer’s Almanac says I’d be okay planting most things by mid-April. Maybe I’ll just watch the extended weather forecast and go from there. We’ll see.

It’s been a beautiful day today and my husband has been diligently working to finish our raised garden bed too.

He’s putting supports under it, and then once it’s ride-side-up he’ll be adding slats across it. Then it will be ready for the organic soil.

All of this has gotten me to thinking about what we should do with our bounty. I was thinking about doing some freezing. My Grandmother canned a lot, and I’m sure if I asked my Mom, she would teach me how. It just all looks so intimidating and dangerous (considering my other nickname is “grace” ha-ha). But I’m sure I can clean and freeze the veggies, no problem. I’ve been checking out some of the new freezer containers at the grocery and I’m pretty sure that’s the way I’m going with anything extra.

Anyway, I haven’t been posting on this subject very often, because frankly, day-by-day pictures of growing vegetables just aren’t that exciting.

Thanks for visiting~Bam
