Thursday Garden Stroll

Hi friends! Welcome to the Thursday garden stroll! We have a bit of everything this week. The rain has finally stopped and we have had a sunny week, so let's see what's happening in the garden!



In our seedling nursery (aka the bedroom windowsill), we have recently transplanted the tomatoes into larger pots. These are "Super Bush" Tomatoes, and are excellent for growing in containers which is what we intend to do. 



We also transplanted the eggplants seedlings this week. This is also a container variety. They are called "Little Prince". (Raymond insists these were named after him!) 


Outdoors our Sweet Pea seeds are coming up! Very exciting! We love Sweet Peas. 


This is our Garden Baby lettuce coming up. This is a good Lettuce to grow in containers and with our limited space, we do a lot of container gardening. 



Last but not least, our Cupani Sweet Peas are blooming! These are volunteers from some Sweet Pea seeds we planted about three years ago. These have the best fragrance. A sure sign of Spring!! They happen to be coming up in a potted Palm tree. 



Thanks for strolling with us today! Don't forget to visit our friend and Mentor Jonesie to see what all the other Feline Gardeners are up to. xoxo, Busby
