to do list

Garden Work
7 Comments

After being away on vacation, there’s always a long list of stuff to catch up on. Here’s my list:

1- Take pictures of my new sprouts: tomatoes and thymes! (These were watered well in my absence.)
2- Open a couple envelopes of new seeds delivered by mail in my absence.
3- Catch up on email (its endless) …
4- Eat my Florida souvenirs: grapefruit, tomatoes, limes and avocado.
5- Finish uploading my photos of Florida flowers, birds and swamps.
6- Edit my planting calculator, based on some very good suggestions.
7- Check out my gardens – but then maybe I’ll wait til the snow melts. I really thought it’d be spring when I got home! We have almost a foot of new snow. (Actually its beautiful.)
8- Get ready to plant broccoli, lettuce and eggplant seeds.
9- Hang out with my buddy, Skippy. Nice to be greeted by a wagging tail…

  • I’m glad to hear that your seedlings were well cared for in your absence. I have come home to some very stressed and dying plants in the past. When I read that you were gone, all I could think was, “Oh, no, the seedlings!”
    Enjoy!

  • I started my tomatoes later than I wanted and it sounds like yours are at the same stage as mine….sprouts. It’ll be interesting how much faster the Florida sun helps mine out. We’ll soon find out!

  • Welcome back! Glad the seedlings are doing well and can’t wait to see pics of how they are doing.

  • Speaking of planting seeds, this is the most dangerous time of year for me. The last frost date in my garden is end of March. But it’s so lovely outside, I sometimes can’t hold back from planting warm season veggies now. The predictable result is that Nature punishes my impatience by waiting for things to sprout and then ambushing them with a hard freeze. Just a few more weeks….

  • Hi Kathy, To Do list can be long this time of year escpecially after having a nice get away. I somethings find myself making lists of other lists to do.

    A fellow veggie blogger is hosting an event to raise awareness and funds for Rett Syndrome. All she is asking others to do is post a photo on her flickr of a dressed up family member or pet and then she is going to donate $10 on your behalf for every photo posted. It would be awesome if Skippy could participate.

    Here is the link to her blog for all the info:

    and here is my photo of a dressed up veggie :-):

  • It’s always nice to be home again and check on seeds sprouting (great fun) or not (not so fun) and contemplate what’s next.

    But just as nice is that wagging tail!
