Getting ready for my spring garden.....I almost can't wait! Well actually I'm not waiting as I've already planted 70 tomato seeds, 50 hot & sweet peppers, 12 cukes, 23 squash, 12 watermelon, 12 eggplant and 4 pumpkin. I've still got about 35 potato plants and 40 broccoli that need to be harvested before I plant my spring crop. It's going to be hectic! Here's some pics to put some visual to it:

Potatoes & Broccoli need to get going....I plan on planting corn here in April.
I don't think my onions are going to bulb. They went about 2 months with very little sun & I think it messed them up. I know next year they'll have sun. How do I know?.......................
...........because I did what any good gardener would do.........cut some trees down! I love trees, but I needed sun! I use a lot of wood in my fireplace anyways, so it won't go to waste.
I also moved my garden shed to make room for some soon-to-be new additions......Orange, Grapefruit, Kumquat & Apple trees. I'm pretty excited about the Apple trees. They haven't been around too long in Florida (I've heard just within the past 10-15 years) and are pretty rare, but they do grow here. Two kinds I'm looking at are called "Anna" & "Dorsett Golden". Hopefully I'll get them tomorrow!
