Gardening season is on the way, even as we plunge into another cold snap–it’s a balmy 33F right now, the warmest it is expected to be for the next 10 days or so–brrrr. I’d rather it stay cold then climb up and down and up and down, of course, but the “stay cold” thing wears thin. I watched (mostly slept through) the Denver/New England AFC playoff game yesterday–always a good day with Pretty Boy Brady and Team Beantown lose–but it was 64F in Denver, while I skipped out to shovel sidewalks at something like 24. That ain’t right.
I placed our main seed order last week, and still have some fill-ins to take care of–onions and leeks will be seeded in trays as soon as they arrive. I didnt think I’d going to grow Cosmonaut Volkov this year, because I’m focusing almost entirely on paste tomatoes this season, but it’s one of the best tomatoes I’ve ever grown. If I only had more room…and that quickly I added a couple more of my favorites to the list. I’m so fickle.
