salmon geranium 02-21-14We have finally had some decent weather this week. Although it looks like it will be cooling off a little again next week, but nothing near as cold as it has been. We are transplanting as fast as we can, but we are about to get behind. To keep up we are working this Saturday. If we don’t get caught up we will start working late next week until we do.

Despite all the terrible weather we have had, we are still more or less on schedule with everything. We are a little behind on some of the plants the like the warmer temperatures like impatiens and begonias. We have a lot of plants that are almost ready, but need some more time. I will be revisiting them on Monday next week to see if they surprise me and get ready over the weekend. It’s happened before. There won’t be much color showing next week unless there are some surprises. Be sure to check the Current Availability on Monday or ask to see if there are any late additions.

We sold our first flats of tomatoes today to Stan Brown, our good friend and owner of Blossomberry Nursery in Clarksville, AR. Stan drove down today and picked up some tomatoes and cole crops. I didn’t get a chance to ask Stan what he was going to do with those tomatoes but I assume that he will be transplanting them up into gallon pots, but he might have a few customers who do their own transplanting and are eager to get a head start so that they can have the first tomatoes on the block. I will have to remember to ask Stan about them.

There are some new items on the list now so be sure to look for the Kohlrabi and Leeks in the #4 Charley’s Vegetables.

Here are some of our cole crops and the first crop of 1204 tomatoes. Not shown are the herbs, strawberries and 1204 vegetables that are also ready. I didn’t have time to round up those pictures.

Like I said above, we don’t have a lot of color ready yet but this is some of it.

We have a lot of color showing on our wave petunia baskets but not all of them are big enough. I only added part of the first planting to the availability so that we could pick out the best ones until the rest of them size up. You may have to click on the picture to pull up a bigger version so that you can see the color better. I was taking the pictures from the floor while the baskets are hanging in the top of the greenhouse.
