Ready Or Not

It's time to start planting seeds........

Hard to believe, isn't it!

Now, it's not time to start all of them, just the slow starters.....Celery, Leeks and Tomatoes. But first.....

Oh dear........

Something really needs to be done about the mess in the sunroom!

Look, there's still a few straggler tomatoes!

 Oh, who has time to clean?  I've got other things to do I just cleared a little spot and got started.

I like to plant Leeks seeds in these open style containers....

And I like to plant the seeds fairly close together....

The temperature needs to be fairly warm until the seeds germinate. After they germinate the temperature can be reduced.

Well, that's enough for today.....wouldn't want to over do it! It's best to ease into the gardening season slowly......
