Maybe I’m rushing the planting season given that we’re expecting upwards of 16 inches of snow – but it’s not snowing inside my greenhouse and the pepper and tomato seeds need to get started. I have a laminated chart that I refer to every year and it says to start peppers and tomatoes before March 8th for my growing zone. So I’m tucked away in my little greenhouse, planting my Italian red peppers, Amish paste tomatoes, Big Boy slicing tomatoes, San Marzano tomatoes, grape cherry tomatoes and yellow pear tomatoes. The flurries are just starting and it’s warm-ish inside. In a few more weeks I’ll start the squash, broccoli and loofah sponges. The loofahs are this year’s experiment – but it will be fun to watch them grow… if spring ever gets here. I’m done with this snow!
