    DH came home with 2 different bags of seed starter soil and a bag of garden soil. We decided to mix all three together for the 5x6in pots. Garden soil mostly frozen. Waiting for it to thaw before starting another 16-20 or so pots.

    I may do more of the already potted or skip a few for the other plants.

    I got 12 pots in total done tonight;
    Two pots of 3x Sweet Pepper.
    Two pots of 3x California Wonder Pepper.
    Four pots of 2x Waltham 29 Broccoli.
    Four pots of 2x Brunswick Cabbage.

    I will be doing bucket gardening this year! So these will be transplanted to 5 gallon buckets when the last threat of frost passes. I still have to scrape up all the dirt from last year's garden up into the buckets I already have(10 new ones so far and a few others around the place). I don't want to waste the medium and the nutrients from the rabbit poo that's still lingering.

    Others to be planted will be;
    Garden mix Carrot, Tom Thumb Lettuce, Red Romaine Lettuce, Straight 8 Cucumber, Iceberg Lettuce, Marketmore 76 Cucumber, Snowball Cauliflower, Crimson Sweet Watermelon, Sweet Corn & Indian Gem Corn!

    Nice greenhouse, secuono. They may be relatively inexpensive, but they do work well. They also will get very warm on a sunny day and bake your plants, so be sure to keep a close eye on the things you have started in there someday.

    With the door wide open, I still managed to kill off two bunnies -- from the heat -- I had inside my little greenhouse.
