Today was a busy one - so didn't spend as much time as I would have liked. I did sort through my seeds (old holdovers and my new ones that came a month ago). Picked out my tomato seeds to plant with my 2 (nearly 3) year old tomorrow. We had good luck with planting marigolds inside so thought we'd try starting some tomatoes as well. Usually I only buy as seedlings but there are so many different varieties to try out there when you start from seeds yourself. Some I just can't resist. We'll see how it goes. I figure if it doesn't work I'll just buy seedlings.
Need a helpful way to know when Iowans should do various garden chores and activities -- pick up a Garden Calendar at your local Extension office! They don't cost much in comparison to the information you gain.
Mmm - can't wait for tomato season!
