The start of my pumpkin crop

It's springtime... not that you'd guess it by the temperature outside. However the amount of rain that is falling sure does serve as a good reminder that it is spring in Nova Scotia!!

At any rate, I am getting anxious to do some yard and garden work but the weather just hasn't been on my side. So I decided to let my green thumb do a little bit of work by starting some seeds indoors. I am growing pumpkins, cucumbers, broccoli, parsley and green beans (so far).

The "crop" I am most excited about is the pumpkins! Other than my "oops" of planting the seeds upside down (I know, I know and I totally knew better) the plants are growing strong and healthy! If we get any sun this weekend (not holding my breath) I will start hardening off the seedlings so they can live outside!

  1. I wish I had a yard TO plant stuff in. Maybe in a few years...


Thanks for leaving me a note!
