My First Fertilizer Friday

http://www.tootsietime.com/ The title links.
This is my first Fertilizer Friday and hope to join in each week. I hope I linked up properly. I am not real computer savvy.

Ya'll if you haven't already and I bet most of you have checked out Ms Tootsie's blog you are really missing out. She post so many great topics and has the prettiest home gardens.

I can't hardly wait to get all my seeds planted - but I expect I'll be doing seeds for the next 2 months. Exciting huh.

This is what I have to share today....

Indoors this baby is really growing since I repotted it 2 weeks ago. Ya'll tell me what it is please. I forget the name. Question how do you root this plant?


The Red Breadseed Poppies are looking good. I have thinned these babies 2 times already. Do I need to thin more? I can't wait for these to bloom.


The snapdragons are looking good too. They are a little slower growing than the Red Breadseed Poppies.

Sorry the photos are dark. These are the Russell Strain Lupines and they are doing beautifully. These came from Hometown Seeds. Can't wait to see these bloom too.




I am so looking forward to having a salad with my lettuce. These are Hometown Seeds - Lettuce Gourmet Mix.

This is Hometown Seeds Broccoli Waltham. I've never grown lettuce and broccoli before. I am going to add to this bed with more salad fixings.


New growth on the Johnsons Blue Geranium.

These daffs didn't get planted till mid the first of Jan. They will be late blooming if they bloom at all. I planted 55 daffodils I bought for $5.

New growth on the Purple Hydrangea. I am going to plant this in the new bed at the porch.

Picture blurry. I took at least 10 pics of the Georgia Peach blossoms but they were all blurry. In a few weeks it will be in full bloom.

And I have to finish off with my favorite fellow - Little Buddy. Buddy is loving playing with his friend, Molly who visits regular. They get so rough with each other sometime - but I'll tell ya he holds his own with Molly the Rat Terrier. Buddy like to pose for the camera.

Well I'm hoping that all of you are starting to warm up a bit. We have had and expect the next 5 days to be beautiful and warming more each day. Next week we are expecting temps to be in the low 70's. YEA!! Spring is around the corner.
Have a great weekend and don't forget to check out Tootsie's blog and see who all else is flaunting their goodies.

Good gravy Becca, you have some luck with seeds don't you? You have a field of poppies..I would harden them off just like they are and then pull chunks out and plop the chunks in the ground......I hope you do join FF from now on, Tootsie is a mess!

I am wanting to do a container garden this year. I need to extensively check out all your archives and gardening links. Don't be surprised if I email you questions!

Your poppies are doing amazing! I love seeing the first true leaves on the Lupines. I just started some too and couldn't believe how fast they came up. I've started them from seed before and they didn't bloom the first year, so don't worry if yours don't either.
It sure is looking good there!

Daisy said...

Becca, your seedlings are all doing so well. Looks like you will have a wonderful garden this year. Hope you have a nice weekend. :-)

Busy Bee Suz said...

You are seed crazy too!!!!
Yes, I got the hometown seeds last week. Thanks for asking....I appreciated winning them from you!!!
I also started some of the gourmet lettuce and brocolli. So exciting.

Spring has sprung, my dear! Don't know what the succulent is. I don't know his name, but you can try asking over at Plant Zone http://plant-zone.blogspot.com/
Have a great and beautiful weekend!

Becca, that first plant looks pretty xeric to me. Maybe I am just thinking warm. Seventy degrees, I don't even want to hear this. We are still in the daytime 40's!

You are gardening up a storm..ya thin the poppies again.. the Lupines are coming along nicely. I do not know what your mystery plant is..but I bet if you take off a leaf and stick it in the soil and keep it moist you will have a new plant:)

Jean said...

I can't wait to get in the garden! I guess the snow needs to melt first. Love seeing the spring hints of green! Jean

Hocking Hills Gardener said...

Becca your seedlings are growing up a storm. You are going to have so many poppies. Won't that be pretty? Looks like Buddy is enjoying the spring air too. ;-)

Becca, I believe your plant is what we call "Hens & Chicks" (succulent). You root simply by picking the leaf off and sticking in the dirt.

Hello Becca,

How exciting to have so many different seedlings coming up. You are certainly ready for spring :^) I love lupines of all types and can't wait to see the flowers on yours. Thank you very much for visiting my blog and leaving a comment...

Becca: That flower in the pot is a Sedum. There are so many kids you have to see it bloom. To root the plant just cut off a leaf and stick it in the ground. They are very hardy plant.
You are going to have so much planting to do really soon.
