So its the end of April and we got a huge snow storm. Like, there was a 4 foot drift up against our back door.
That was Saturday, and the snow is still here, and there is more falling…. and there is more in the forecast.
None of my green lettuce seeds germinated, so I definitely need to replace those seeds this year. The Kale was fine, but life got busy, so I never got them potted up into something more appropriate for them. They are currently under snow as I write this.
My tomatoes don’t realise they need to slow down their growth rate, but they are doing fantastic. I knew I would be glad I reined in my tomato starting compulsion when it got to this point. Although, when I thinned the Tiny Tim’s I put the cuttings into a shot glass and they have grown roots and are almost ready to be potted up into actual soil. More Tomato math.
The Peppers are doing well also. I’ll do some proper updates on both the peppers and the tomatoes once I have the time to get photos of them.
I sowed some spinach outside, and before the snow it was just germinating. It is protected so there isn’t 2 feet of snow on top of them, but I’m hoping the cold hasn’t affected them too much.
I have everything crossed that this will be the last bite of winter and maybe I can get the tomatoes out before June.
Also, If you are in Calgary (or will be on May 11th), Stop by the Etsy Calgary Spring Market. It is being held at the Ross Glen Hall at Mount Royal University, from 10am- 5pm. I’ll be there with all the things I have been making. More regular garden posts will happen once that is not my main focus. Check out my Etsy shop here.
