Forgive me for not replying sooner. We have been so busy with Valentine's day, it has been unreal. I'm glad it's over.Congrats on the kale! Do you have milk jugs over them out in the garden?
I have them planted inside milk jugs. In fact, I now have brussel sprouts, dill and even tomatoes that have sprouted. All in milk jugs. Winter sowing. Trying it for the first time.
I got my potatoes planted yesterday. Red Norlands, Yukon Golds and some yummy red potatoes with yellow centers I picked up at the store. The Yukon's didn't make enough for the bed, so added the store ones to finish it out. I got both beds covered with leaves. So now it's just a waiting time until the last frost.
I trimmed back and fertilized my knock out roses. Those things have some wicked thorns. Also trimmed back my butterfly bushes. They never did die back this year.
Hope to do some more yard work tomorrow.
