The “Black Prince” snapdragons that I planted last year took forever to get going, and I actually only got a few blooms out of them. (So I started them a few weeks earlier this year). But they kept this beautiful purple foliage throughout the winter, so I’m planning to plant the new ones in the same bed a little more densely, interspersed with these established ones. I just moved the seed flat that I started on February 3rd out to the greenhouse and I’m inclined to use the packet up and get even more going. Another round of snapdragons? Still a little bit earlier than last year? 🤔 Why the hell not....

These are the “Black Prince” snapdragons that I sowed on February 3rd, they are just starting to get a purple tinge to their itty bitty leaves, and I moved these out to the greenhouse today. These are cold tolerant as well, the ones I planted last year kept all their foliage throughout the winter, so I’m planting even more of these this year.

I finally finished decluttering the inside of the greenhouse as well today. This space now “sparks joy”. I’m actually going to enjoy puttering around in here now, or just sitting in here on a rainy day with a cup of tea listening to the raindrops. 🌱

More peas were started in grow bags inside the greenhouse today. These are a bush variety called “Sugar Ann”, the same ones that I already have growing in there, but I had the newly cleared space and the grow bags, so I started a few more bags to grow in succession to the ones that I’ve got already. I also started the pot next to the compost bin with the same peas. I might be pushing it a little bit with the outside ones as far as temperature, but it’s starting to warm up now, so I’m giving it a go.... what the hell. 🌱
