Mike posted earlier that he had mater plants up about an inch tall. We planted a few last week, and they are pushing up fairly well. Mike, we're gonna have to protect them awhile if the weather predictions for the first two weeks of March hold true. :eek: :eek: :eek: ;)

Haven't even thought about planting up here yet.
I waited about a week later than usual, and I am glad I did as cold as we have been. The feed store where I get most of my stuff has not had the fertilizer I want. He may have it this week, as the mill at the fertilizer plant was being rebuilt. Since he is about 30 miles away, I hope to get all we need in one trip.

I am surprised they dont have those seeds in SC Betty. We got 'em here, and they are in southwestern NC near the SC line.

We will be starting our tomatoes and peppers this weekend hopefully to be ready for early May - hopefully it works! Good luck getting a hold of your fertilizer, it seems like the seed store up here is running a little behind right now as I've had difficulty getting access to a few things. Best of luck keeping those plants healthy - I'm sure that you all will be fine though :D

is better here at our Southern States.

Betty, I know that we can get bad seed, but I think more often it is the soil and weather conditions immediately after planting that determine germination as much as anything. Being too extreme in any way, too cool, too dry, or too wet will really mess things up.

My tomatoes are 6" tall and planted into their big tree pots. They are in the greenhouse right now, I move them to the garage when the weather warms and move them in and out as needed if frost is a problem. I have 2 raised beds with hoops that have been planted, lettuce, swisschard, peas, onions and such for salad gardens. I still have 3 cabbages under a hoop from last fall. We are not planting to can this year, so much left over that needs eaten. Plus we want to get away more and travel some this year. Son will take care of things when we are gone....James
