I HAVE SPROUTS!!! WOOHOO!! Beefsteak tomatoes (from seed packed for this year), Fox cherry tomatoes (from old seed from Seeds of Change), white hibiscus and artichokes (from Pinetree this year) all have sprouted!! Just one of the artichokes is starting to poke through the soil, but that means more aren't very far behind.
Weather today: sunny and warm (82 the thermometer on the porch table says), soil temp in one of the wine barrels next to the raised beds under the peace sign is 48 degrees.
