We have been experiencing nice warm weather this month...it has been in the 50's and 60's for the last 3 weeks.
My tulips have already started emerging however I'm afraid they will flower before the real winter is over.
The ground is workable and I have begun tilling the soil, taking advantage of the extra time.
So far I have been right on schedule for starting seeds, assuming the last frost comes around May 11th (probably sooner with how nice it has been).
I have already lost track of what I have started (something to learn from for next year) but I have a general idea of what is what. So far I have started Jalepenos, misc. colored bell peppers, multi(hot mix) peppers, sweat peas, hollyhocks, bellflowers, colombine, and some other flowers. They all started growth quick and I haven't seen much happen in the last 2 or 3 weeks but with the sun we've been getting, I'm hoping they will have a growth spurt soon.
This week I need to start my "6-8 weeks before last frost" plants, and I'm running out of room!
This years plants include the following- edibles first, then flowers:
Multi bell peppers
Hibiscus (most excited for)
Many different colored Poppys
Johnny Jump Ups
Red hot poker
Wildflower mixes, butterfly mixes, cutting mixes
As the season continues, I will update this with where things are planted, and when...
