Asparagus survived! That's all that mattered. Rain and even a possibility of snow in the 10-day, but no more hard freezes. lots o  Too cold to get serious about outside gardening yet, but I will be starting some more seeds inside.

I must be the only one on the Forum that is enjoying the winter rain and wind, and tinkering indoors. Before I know it, it will be hot and the Aedes Aegypti mosquito will be tormenting me.

This weekend I am starting my seeds indoors. I was wondering what to use for potting soil, when I remembered I had some left over bags of vermiculite, fluffed peat moss and store-bought compost! So I'm making Mel's Mix and filling the seed pots. Tomorrow I will start the tedious job of seeding and most important, labeling what I plant. I wanted to reconfigure the light stands for the T8 shop lights but I won't have time. I procrastinated all winter.

I may have jury duty starting Monday, for 5-6 weeks. What a Face I made the cut for the pool for this long trial. So, a 3-day weekend to get my affairs in order, which to me means starting the seedlings. Wink

Unexpected gorgeous day for gardening! happy turtle I pulled up last year's corn stalks, pulled the weeds in that bed, and applied a bucketful of finished composed over a layer of rabbit poo from last month. I also raked up the wood chips around it. When it's time to plant in that location, it will be ready.

Thursday:  Seedlings enjoying the warmth and sun.  Rain is forecast for a few days starting tomorrow, Tuesday.  At least we got the light stands up inside for rainy days. California - What are you doing this month? - Page 12 Seedli15

Friday:  Bridal veils washed and drying on the lines. California - What are you doing this month? - Page 12 Bridal10

Friday: Getting ready to pull the winter crops. California - What are you doing this month? - Page 12 Winter14

Saturday and Sunday: Added new compost to the beds and turned it under in preparation for Tuesday's rains.  Also, harvested all of the oranges, which will be juiced on a rainy day.  The frozen orange juice from last year was still delicious this spring.

Seedlings safe and snug on this stormy day.  I was late getting them started but I won't transplant until late April.  As my daughter and I say, "Better to be late than really late."

Every day, 3 bees and one hummingbird visit the kale flowers.  I didn't know HB could get anything from the kale flowers. ??

Juicing the last of the oranges for freezing. It's hard to tell but that one huge orange is as big as the 2-cup measuring cup. California - What are you doing this month? - Page 12 Orange12

What with the April rains, has anyone planted their seedlings? I was late starting seedlings indoors and they are still too small to survive a hard rain. I did manage to sow all of the beans this evening after finishing up the new summer squash bed. (A 2' x 1 1/2' short table top sitting on bricks.)

I tried to set out some eggplants, basal, and parsley. They have been waiting far too long to be transplanted, but I took advantage of the break in the weather and in they went. They were so leggy that the rain  has beaten them up pretty badly, so my fingers are crossed and I hope they make it.  I'm going to set out the tomatoes in a few days and see if they can get going.I don't know if the sparrows will lay off them and give them a chance- they hit the kale and chard so bad that the stalks barely have any green on them. Seems like they descend on my garden just ahead of a storm front and set up a banquet on anything green or blossoming-it's odd that they haven't developed a taste for weeds, but why should they bother, when I've set the table for them.

Sparrows are cute until they decide to eat at the buffet. I think something dug up a bean last night. Today is beautiful, coolish but sunny. I think I will take the chance and plant a few more test plants today. Shocked

It's midnight and the temperature is 54*F and expected to drop of 46*F. We are having a slight rain with strong winds. All of the seedlings have been outdoors for days now and the grow light back in storage. So . . . I set all of the trays in an unplanted bed and covered with 4 mil plastic to get through the night. I just have to remember to open during the day or I will be back to the drawing board. Shocked
