Today was a very exciting day. I planted my very first tree! It's a beautiful, 10 foot 'Prairifire' crabapple tree. It cost too much, but it sure looks nice in my yard.
I almost planted my tomatoes today. They are about two feet tall. I think one is about to get blossoms on it. Although their aren't any days in the 30s predicted in the weekly forecast, I'm trying to be patient. It's tough, but I would hate to have to find a dozen things to cover them up with. It would be too stressful for me...and the plants. I just have to keep in mind that the last frost we had last season came on May 23rd! Our average last frost is between May 10th and 15th.
Here is a picture of how my tomatoes are doing. Also you can see in the picture the pink, salmon, and red impatiens that I took cuttings from last season. A Thumbelina zinnia plant on the bottom left. Scarlet Starlet marigolds are to the right of the impatiens. In the foreground I just started some morning glories and more herbs.
