Anticipation is one of the delights of gardening. Each seed placed in the soil, each small plant tucked in the ground, is a hopeful action.
I started my indoor garden far too early and the result was big plants ready to be outdoors and a cold spring that did not accommodate this. So I faithfully carried them outdoors and in when the nights to the end of May were too cold, 2° C in our community. I also need to rely on a friend to water almost EVERYDAY!, while we were away. I am gifted with wonderful friends.
Waiting for Good weather!
