Spring Fever and Seedling Love
Happy Thursday All! Thanks for stopping by. I didn't get around to doing a tablescape this week because I was outside enjoying the weather and getting my garden ready. But the wacky Missouri weather and Mother Nature have decided winter can rear its ugly head once more. So, back to 40 degree temps for a another week or so.
I thought I would show you a few things popping up inside. I have ordered a few plants and started some seeds. I don't usually have much luck starting tomatoes from seed so I will have some plants for back up. These beauties are Cherokee Purple Heirloom tomatoes. I ordered them and shipment wasn't to be till April 8th. But they came 3 weeks ago! So, I had to repot them a few days ago. They are "curling" a bit but, I think its just from the shock.
Here are Some Poppy's just peeking out. They will be Oriental Red. I think they will be ready to thin soon.
These are Giant Scarlet Zinnia's reaching for the sun. I rotate them twice a day but they really want that sun. Can you blame them?
Last but not least are my Hale's Best Jumbo Cantaloupe. They popped up so fast. They are a early variety. But these guys have big plans. If they only knew whats in store for them!
What's going on with your garden? I would love to hear "What's Popping Up" in your world. Next week more plants will be arriving, all heirlooms of course. Bull Nose Peppers, San Marzano Tomatoes, Long Purple Egg Plant and Umpdalapet Egg Plant. I cant wait to share pics with you after they get over their shock. So come back for more.
I will be heading off to see every one's wonderful tablescapes with Susan at Between Naps On The Porch. I have dug up a wonderful vintage tablecloth and napkins that I cant wait to share! Hope to see you all soon!
