Transplanting seedlings

My little army of tomatoes moved from their peat cups into bigger digs today - milk cartons and salad boxes. I think the salad boxes make nice little greenhouses! Of course, if I play my cards right I won't have to buy so much salad next winter.Three or four more weeks until the official last frost date. It's been really nice lately, but I'm not letting it fake me out. I've lost too many plants that way in the past!

you're smart to wait. Down here in TN we wait until after Mother's day for a lot of our vegetables.

What a great idea...and recycling, too.

Here I won't plant anything until June 1st. We have snow and hail all the way into Memorial Day weekend.
This past weekend it hailed. bleh!

Our fruit trees are blossoming and I'm praying that we don't get any snow storms and freezes or we won't get any fruit harvest. wah!
