As much as I've enjoyed our 75-plus degree weather yesterday and today, I don't quite trust that it's really here to stay--at least not enough to plant my tomatoes in the ground yet--so I potted them. The forecast indicates a low of 45 tonight, so I'll bring in my potted tomatoes tonight and let them back out for tomorrow's sun. I have Juliets, an Old German, a Valley Girl, a Sun Gold, and a tomatillo. Boggy Creek farm will have some transplants for sale in the next few weeks, so I plan to buy Cherokee Purples from them.
Last weekend husband Kurt added lots of our homemade compost and made a fluffy, 10-inch deep bed for me to plant potatoes (Yukon Gold) for the first time ever. I never considered myself much of a potato person until I tasted freshly dug Yukon Golds. They're very creamy and not overly starchy. Can't wait!
