So, since mine were looking pretty spindly anyway, I am giving it a try. I re-potted some yesterday and will see how they do. E planted some watermelon seeds indoors and also some ornamental milkweed. The crocus are blooming in the backyard now and the whole front yard smells of violets.
Some Spring in the garden quotes:
Spring makes its own statement, so loud and clear that the gardener seems to be only one of the instruments, not the composer. ~Geoffrey B. Charlesworth
In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt. ~Margaret Atwood
And since I have been collecting mulch to do more Ruth Stout-ing in my garden.
I love spring anywhere, but if I could choose I would always greet it in a garden. ~Ruth Stout
And this last one, my sentiments exactly.
I think that no matter how old or infirm I may become, I will always plant a large garden in the spring. Who can resist the feelings of hope and joy that one gets from participating in nature's rebirth? ~Edward Giobbi
