It is now the 2nd weekend in May. This is the week where we are supposed to put our seedlings outside. We’ve put a lot of time and thought into our seedling process.
But first, let’s review our work from last week. This is a picture of the rocks we added to the side of the foundation for our retaining wall last week.
We didn’t do too much more with the foundation this week but continued to work on our seedlings, placing them in bigger pots and assembling a cold frame so that we could place some of them outside. We read that 2 weeks before the last frost, when you transplant your seeds to the ground, that you should put them in a greenhouse or something similar so that they would get acclimated to the outside weather. We added an owl to scare away any rabbits or other critters who found their way inside the cold frame. We also put together 3 tomato teepees and planted 2 tomatoes and 1 tomatillo in them.
We also saw a bird now sitting in the nest we found last week. Coincidentally, it was Mother’s Day weekend.
