I have been wiped out with a mutant cold the last few days. My fever broke a bit after midnight this morning, thankfully. Although I feel sluggish and congested still I want to take advantage of the beautiful weather today and start hardening off some of my seedlings. I will put them out for 1-2 hours today and then slowly increase the time over the next week. I also need to go to the local nursery and pick up some compost and soil to fill a large planter in my backyard. I want to get sugar snap peas, bush beans and peas planted today.
My running around hysterically the other day to cover all my plants outside seems to have paid off, as far as I can tell. Everything but the 3 mint plants in the window box are green and perky. The mint plants are still green but a bit droopy. I guess time will tell.
