22 March 2005, Hosta, Pepper, Tomato, Baby Blue Eues, Shasta Daisy, Rudbeckia, Heliopsis, Monarda, Mrs. Kendal Clark Geranium

22 March 2005
There it is, sunshine. We all felt better for some of it. Our furnace was out last night. The sun was so bright today and reached into so many new crannies that the house was almost colder inside than out.
I got the soil I'd put in the garage last fall out and filled some flats with soil. then I put in some seeds in neat, well marked rows. Some of the plants on the porch that looked dead from too much cold, were alive inside and I trimmed them up and tried to find space for everything. In a few weeks a lot of plants can go out, as the landscape outside greens up. Right now there are plants all over the porch waiting more patiently than I am for warmer weather.
I planted;
-Pinetree New American Hosta Mix (Hybrid) in the white plastic tub. There had been Lobilia in this tub, I transplanted that to a wetter spot that gets more light.
-Into the 1st flat went the seeds I'd saved from the white, fall flowering Hosta, then Tri-Fetti pepper, Sauce Tomato, Small Cherry Tomato, Pinetree Fooled You Pepper, Italian roasting, Ancho 101.
-2ond flat Nemophila or Baby Blue Eyes, I could have sewn it directly into the soil, but it looked too brown to me outside. Also Shasta Daisy -Chrysanthemum x superba, Baby Sun Coreopsis, Indian Summer Rudbeckia, Chocolate Orange Rudbeckia, Heliopsis, Monarda Panorama mix, and Mrs. Kendal Clark Geranium that is a pale blue.
