Holding off on planting out anything more just yet. A few of the plants are showing some wear from this wacky weather, but they’re holding their own.
There doesn’t seem to have been much damage to the garden from the surprise snow storm. We got about 7 inches on Saturday – breaking records all over the island.
The delphinium, bleeding hearts and jacob’s ladder were the most impacted. They had put on a burst of growth in the warmth of the previous week. All the vegies which I started from seed seem to be doing okay. So far, so good.
Sorry, the garden is winning my attention at the moment – both in reality and virtually at www.westcoastgardener.ca
But, stay tuned. I will be growing this site in the future.
Well, the coldframe did it’s job for the seedlings. Thanks, Christina.
The Mesclun mix has been transplanted to its garden bed. The beet and snowpea seeds have germinated and are breaking through the surface. The coldframe now holds heritage tomatoes, sweet million’s and purple basil waiting their turn.
Soon, I’ll have my kitchen back as the seedlings make their way out the door to the garden. Oh, yes and no more potting soil to sweep up.
