Well it has been a month since I last checked in about my urge to grow and I am happy to say progress has been made. Spring cleaning has been in full effect and the garden plot and rooftop growing season is getting underway. Over the past few weeks the cold frame has been rewrapped, spinach, kale, chard, herbs and onions have been planted and the tomatoes seedlings are shaping up nicely with the help of the finished cold frame.
With the cold frame up and running... tomatoes are nearly twice this size with the recent burst of heat and the remaining seed starts are going to be planted in the garden plot tomorrow. Was hoping to get to them this past weekend but transplanting on days with the temperatures in the 80's is usually not a good idea. It seems this sudden burst of summer heat is fading away for a few days and cloudy 60 degree days are in the mix for the rest of this week... I will update with pictures of the garden plot over the next few days !
A view inside the cold frame, a nice little heirloom tomato collection...
Soil has been sifted and pots cleaned... now everything is soaking in some heavy sun rays and the growth is bursting day by day !
This little guy was taking a bath and keeping me company while out at the rooftop garden.
Mmmm all this work now its time for a nice local dinner... Tonights feast !
