Well, my seedlings were doing just awesome... until last friday (4/16). I put them outside since it was such a nice day - figured get a jump on hardening them off. Bad idea. Damn things got sunburned! They're looking kinda rough, but I think they'll pull through. The peppers, which were the hardest hit, look to have some new growth to them. The eggplant took a beating too, not sure if they'll be okay.

The sugar snap peas I've planted outside are going like gangbusters. Same for the lettuces and spinach.

The flower gardens are just blooming away. We had a great year for daffodils. The grape hyacinths, johnny-jump-ups and violets are all out.

Hopefully, I'll get some pictures posted later in the week.

Spring again. Love this time of year. A time of rebirth. Seeds have been started. This year's crop: Yellow Teardrop Tomatoes, Roma Tomatoes, Purple Basil, Lime Basil, Sweet Banana Peppers, Cayenne Peppers, Jalapeño Peppers, Ghostbuster Eggplant; Bolivian Hot Peppers. Have direct sowed sugar snap peas for growth up a trellis. Will direct sow zucchini, spaghetti squash, winter squash and possibly pumpkins.
