    As a diversion from sorting out the box of tax paperwork etc :)

    I wonder when Pac NW gardeners sow seeds to transplant later outside

    when do you start “chitting” your potatoes ? (I started because I had an expensive bags of organic potatoes in the kitchen that sprouted a week ago)

    i think I might start some
    Patio cherry tomato plants
    Coleus! (If I can find seeds)

    I am a sweet pea failure tho I keep trying

    i always direct sow some viola (little pansies ) in some pots

    and direct sow Swiss chard in a container

    for us, growing up on the mainland coast circa 1960s and 70s, approx 500 feet above sea level — the old timer traditional soil planting date was Victoria Day wkd in May (approx Memorial Day USA)

    Another thought — I tried to save annual pelargonium geraniums thru this recent monsoon and ice season but …

    and I think I have lost a border-line hardy fuchsia that I know does well near Portland Oregon — it’s called Santa Claus (red and white flowers)

    my Arp rosemary plant has — touch wood - sailed through this coast weather fairly unscathed — highly recommend for growing and cooking
