    Ooooops! [:$] My face is red…..I see that the St Patricks thread from yesterday has turned into the VSR thread…..if I would have read more closely I would have figured that out.  I tried to delete this thread, but couldn’t, so here it is…..lol.  Charlene

    I have 2 built in wash tubs in the basement.  They only have legs on the front and the back is attached to the wall.  I have seen some rather tastefully planted tubs before…..like the ones in your pic, Connie.  Charlene

    I remember Faye….and she and I have shared seeds before.  When I went to the gathering of BYC in Coralville Iowa I met luvslillies….but not the same person as  luvlilync……my face was red over that incident…..gave her a big hug and called her “Faye”….but she wasn’t Faye….oops.  I hope she can find her way back here to the garden.   Charlene

    Wow, Linda….you did get good germination on those!  They are healthy looking seedlings.  I transplanted my Campanula this morning and put them into the 9 cell packs……they are small, but I felt they were the right size in comparison to the size of my plants.  Charlene

    I only have 2 six foot shop lights going….round the clock and I switch out trays every 12 hours.  Only have 4 trays left that need to be under the lights.  All of the transplants (15 trays) are in south windows.  Charlene

    The 3 oz dixie cups should be fine.  No, you shouldn’t have to transplant them again….but, I wouldn’t set seedlings out before your last frost date.  They are tender and need some harden off time before being planted into the ground.  Charlene

    Good evening everyone.  I had a relaxing, but yet productive day.  I got all of my transplanting done and everything else on my list for househole chores.  Took my friend lunch and ran a couple errands for her.  I did decide to hold off on another tray of seeds until next weekend.

    Kathy….that is nice of you to make those meals for your Mom.  She will appreciate it if she remembers who did it.  I know your kids visiting probably disturbed your plans, but many people would give their right arm to have their kids able to visit on a regular basis.  That is something I take for granted as well…..having my kids and GKs so close by that I can see them so often.

    Gayle….I’ve read a couple times that you go to the library on Sunday.  Ours is closed.  I would have loved to have been on that walk with you and Chelsea….I’ve never seen the Atlantic Ocean.

    Molly….our weather is giving me fits as well.  Tonight we are supposed to get 3 to 4 more inches of rain followed by an arctic front that will make our temps drop to single digits….BRRRRR….does that make you feel warmer where you are at?  LOL

    Leroy….the frozen soil this time of year is my pet peeve.  Walmart, Lowes, Home Depot, Menards….and many other places store their soil in their parking lots for the winter.  Right now they are still under snow so it is impossible to buy a bag of soil.  GRRRRR

    Wanda….sorry to hear that you and DH are both suffering with colds.  Really sorry to hear about your step daughter’s fire….glad she was able to escape.  God never gives us more than we can handle, but it is questionable sometimes, isn’t it?

    Leslie….how is your Dad doing?  I know you said that he is in hospice care now and that he doesn’t speak anymore.  It must be so difficult to go and visit him.  I admire you for doing it.

    Karen….you are just a seed starting fool this year, aren’t you?  I gues since you missed out last year you are making up for lost time.  When you mentioned Donna’s mystery seeds, made me wonder how she is doing.  I haven’t seen her post in a long time and have not gotten an email from her in ages.  I try to not bug her because she feels compelled to answer emials and doesn’t always feel up to it.  I thought of her earlier when I transplanted Godetia that I got from her.

    Sue….it sounds like you had a very relaxing day.  I didn’t even know that Walmart carried books.  I don’t shop there real often.  AND….lucky you to get a nap.

    Have a good evening everyone.  Charlene

    Good morning Molly and Del and all who visit later.  We are warmer than we have been at 29º, but not in the 50s like you gals are.  They are predicting a cold front moving in and temps are going back down into the single digits….shucks!

    I have a few friends coming over in a few minutes for coffee.  I have a coffee cake in the oven right now.  I then have to go to work for a few hours.  This afternoon we are going to get groceries and then I will be sitting with my friend.  She is still a very sick girl.

    I guess I’d better read abd catch up on posts……glad to hear that Wanda is home and John is doing well.

    Have a great Saturday everyone.  Charlene

    Wanda, we are glad to have you back and happy that little John is doing better.  I know you have been through a hard time, but I am sure the family appreciated you being there.  How is Momma to be doing?  Will you return when the baby is born?  Get caught up on your rest and then you will have time to do seedlings….or like Del said….just go on a shopping spree…..that sounds like alot of fun!  Charlene

    Steve…..I apologize for not doing a weekend picture post.  Right now I am dealing with way too many real life situations to have time to do it,  If anyone else has time….please do it.  Charlene
