Garlic Sprouts Under Cloudy Skies

We are already seeing the clouds moving in from tropical storm Simon, off the coast of Baja CA.  I don't expect us to get any rain from this storm in our area; the mountains and deserts may see some and I know that AZ is supposed to get hit pretty hard with rain.  For now I will just enjoy the moisture and these beautiful clouds.

On my To Do List for today is to transplant the kale, broccoli, cabbages, and some of the lettuces from the pony packs into 4" pots.  I could wait until I plant the garden and plant them directly but I am not sure what weather we will have.  I will have more control over watering in the small pots.

I will plant these in the garden at the end of October, they should all be showing their faces by then!

Almost twice the height of the 4 inch pot.  The cloves were planted 21 days ago. 


  1. I love clouds to watch; sometimes they promise a good soaking; spring is fickle here..but there is tomorrow. The nursery is always busy; it is so satisfying to grow from scratch. I have found a love in different geraniums and salvias, as they do not mind some dryness, some more some less. Happy gardening, Carla.
