The market I am going to tomorrow is not a real early bird one. I don't have to be set up and ready until 8:30am but I think I'll leave the house at 7:30 - the market is only 10 minutes away. There seemed to be an issue getting a booth, as many of the farmers are starting to come back with their Easter plants. I had hoped some more of the cyclamen would pop into bloom but no luck. Got to fertilize with some bloom builder on Sunday. I'll have the houseplants who are protesting the chill in the greenhouse and 3 flats of herb plants. Will load them at the last minute tomorrow.
Pam and I worked all day today from 10am to 4pm - a long day for us. It does take me a half hour to go get Pam and then take her home so add a couple hours to that total. We started in the Big OC greenhouse and transplanted babies. I harvested the aforementioned greens for market and we watered. Did Shasta daisy Snowdrift, Red Carnations, Lupines, Achillea Summer Berries and Broccoli. We have lots more seedlings to transplant and Vicki's greenhouse is maxed out for space. Got to get a couple more shelves for my greenhouse and am praying for warmer nighttime temperatures so some of these plants can go outside on the benches in my yard.
Went next to Vicki's greenhouse and potted up the rest of the Walter's Gardens shipment. Salmon poppies, yellow Corydalis, lemon Heuchera, a purple and white Viola, blue False Indigo and Brunnera Jack Frost. Potted 72 of the Brunnera which was a hit last season so I don't think I'm in danger of running out. Will be selling those at bargain prices - just $4.00 for a 4 1/2" pot. Can't beat the price.
