I finally got the greenhouse shelves set up and my tomato and pepper seeds started. I usually do this by mid March, but this time I decided to order my seeds online instead of going to Menards or Lowes. This was a big mistake! I placed an order with Henry Fields on February 4th. In spite of an email and two phone calls, I did not receive my order until last Friday. I ordered all seeds. No live plants! It still took almost two full months to receive my order. I won't do that again!
Thankfully I finally received them, I set up the shelves, and I started the seeds. So even though I began this post by whining, I am grateful that things are getting going. I am getting started with Roma Tomatoes, Centennial Tomatoes, Anaheim Peppers and Sweet Peppers, along with Italian Parsley and some dill. Some day soon it will dry out and warm up, and I will actually be able to work outside in the garden.
