Reptile - I have tomato seeds on order. I will be planting them as soon as they come in. I love Trish's wick system - so simple yet so effective. It is still chilly - had frost last week. No real freeze. I moved my work table under the patio cover in a corner. One side is the brick house the other is lattice. I stapled visqueen to the lattice to create a corner. The patio cover will protect my plants from frost. I also have a couple of shop lights that I bought "grow light" bulbs for. If a freeze is predicted I just have to leave the lights on over night. A freak hard freeze I can bring the flats in (not a great idea with my 2 kitties.) or just drape them with dry cleaner bags. IDK. I haven't grown from seed in such a long time that this really is a new treat. I will wait until the end of the month to plant my pepper, cucumber and eggplant seeds. The tomato varieties are new to me and not on the recommended list for south Louisiana so I may be shooting myself in the foot. Don't care. I have a backup plan - I will plant some traditional varieties just to be sure that I have maters this summer. Still working on a plan to make optimum use of my square foot garden. I grow as much as I can vertically at the back of my boxes but with the new tomato varieties G will have to make some new frames for me. Time is flying. He has to get that done soon because he is having knee replacement in Feb. and will not only be useless in the yard/garden but will be the biggest baby imaginable
I love that man but he is the WORST
Happy New Year One and All

When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant. ~Author Unknown
