It's March and we are still in the midst of the deep freeze here in Toronto. Snow, snow, and more snow. I was reading through some of my old blog post from 2012 we were already seeing movements in yard with Spring bulbs and shoots peaking out of the ground by this time already (that was a rare/unusually mild Spring though).
Seed starting began for me almost two weeks ago and the Cayenne pepper is beginning to sprout. Added some eggplant seeds as well.
This weekend is time to start the tomato seeds. This year I am going to plant 5 types of tomatoes. Technically I only need one seedling of each, but I always plant a few extras because there's always some seeds that don't start or the seedling doesn't survive. And if I end up with more healthy seedlings than I can handle, my family and friends certainly doesn't mind :)
