Two weeks ago, I was outside raking old dead plants and leaves from my gardens. I found my lilies coming up all along my house, note to self, they need to be thinned, and I took my velcro plant tape and fixed up my rose bushes. I raked out he large bed and found hundreds of things coming up, still have no clue what most of it is yet, and cleaned out my from garden were most of the natives are, which are also coming up! Everything was so alive and beautiful! Then it happened! Thursday night, on my way home from a Joe walsh concert down state, we Got hit by an ice storm. I was worried all the way home! But! There is a but! When I got home to investigate, I found that my area only got some rain and a little snow! Thank you god! I know that most of what is out there will have no problem living threw whatever northern Michigan throws at them, but I’m already anxious enough half them time so it was really bothering me. But no worries!
I have most, if not all, of my pots and grow bags collected and ready for my container veggie garden! I cleaned out and raked the area I plan on setting it all up. I will be going back threw all of my seeds to make sure everything is ready. I can start a few cold weather crops at the end of this month.
I ended up repotting my tomato seedlings as they were not doing well. I figured it was because the pots were so small. Now they are doing great and have their second set of leaves.
The swallowtail columbine I received in a trade is doing amazing also! I should have enough to spread it out into a few spots in the garden. I’m thinking of putting a clump in a pot by my veggies so the butterflies and whatnot can help with pollination.
I should be able to get the mini greenhouse outside very soon. When I do, I plan on starting some other things that didn’t last in the house.
Well I think that’s all the garden news I have right now!
