    Okay, it's started. This week I bought 7 tomato plants, I don't know how many pepper plants (my husband was picking them up!), 4 bags of topsoil, 4 bags of peat humus, & 1 big bag of organic compost. I'm gonna build me a new tomato patch!!! The peppers will be planted where I put them 2 yrs ago; they really did good in that spot, but I'll be trying to break some ground this weekend, weather permitting, on the new tomato bed.
    Of course, I also had to buy some pretty flowers too. I got some gorgeous Lemon Zest petunias, & some pink WAVE petunias. Also today I got a small Coral Bells plant; never had one before.
    Happy Gardening!!!

    Thanks for the pics. Your way ahead of us here in north Idaho, but spring is finally here too. The garden is ready to be tilled and some of the hartier stuff can start going in the ground in a week or two. We will still get an occasional frost until the middle of May or so. Just have to be ready to cover your plants at night. We won't quit tho. Gotta have a garden...

    Frost in the middle of May??? Not in Louisiana; by then, we're usually in the upper 80's with "godawful" humidity!!
    Well, no tomato patch work today.....it's raining....again.:sad2:
