I just got home with pots of rosemary, sweet marjoram, and cilantro from the nursery.

I really, really need to make a trip to the nursery. The one I usually go to is now a car dealership.

Maybe they moved again. I'll have to try to find them. They have/had an organic section.

Why do you get a seed catalogue if you don't grow stuff?

It's NOT just a seed catalog...they have everything simple and Amish. I use it for some of my soap making ingredients and the rustic fun items. Check out the site...they have every thing.

Fresno Chili's...

I never heard of them until one day, several decades ago, I was picking blackberries next to the upper Napa River, and I noticed the peppers the Campesino's grew were Fresno's...

So I order some every year from a garden supplier...

It's still to early to put them out in the garden due to frost, so they're in the greenhouse for a few more weeks...

Last Sunday I planted 12 tomato plants, 8 bell pepper plants, 4 jalepeno pepper plants, and 8 more broccoli plants.

I did a light weeding [dandelions are not stymied by the heavy mulch]. Most things are doing well except my carrots which were covered by mulch by my garden "helper".

I just went to Park Seed's web site and bought lots of seeds. Actually, I tend to mostly grow from seedlings because of our short growth year. But I can never resist. It's still too early to plant! I freaked when I came home from 3 weeks caring for parents to find that a packet of romaine gave me a half dozen heads. A slight bit bitter (I've been told by my farmer friends it's because there wasn't any rain), but OK enough. But I bought a half-dozen bags of composted manure, and my tomato plants (early girls) and some herbs. Already have sage, curly parsley, some mints, lovage, burnette, chives, oregano, thyme coming from my perennial/biennual herb plants. I want to plant some edible flowers as well.
