Happy Easter, all. We had rain overnight but it is supposed to dry out and get up to about 60 with a few patches of sun. We hit 70 on our little patio yesterday and I decided to leave the peppers and tomatoes out under the plastic. I just checked up on them and they seem quite happy. I pulled out the seeds to decide on which plants to start (or restart) next. I will do that a bit later. I have a bunch of seedlings that need to be transplanted. I had hoped that they would go straight into the large containers but the weather isn't cooperating.

The news has been carrying the gas price story almost daily. But it all sounds so much like the last spike a couple of years ago. And I doubt that anything will or can be done at the governmental level. The only thing that would bring prices down will be what so many of the economic talking heads have called 'demand destruction,' people simply stop buying as much. We will get a look at the prices tomorrow when we go out for Mom's yearly physical.

I finished transplanting the marigolds and the petite rouge lettuce a bit ago. After a break I will get some more seedlings started. Enjoy your Easter, everyone.

Gray day in Ohio. I marvel at your hard work and dedication to your gardening. I think I may have found a solution to my problem with my front flower beds. I tripped across seeds for shade-loving wildflowers. I'm going to give them a try. Hopefully, they will work. I've just about decided to paint my wrought iron railings when it gets a tad warmer and dryer. They look tacky and since I've no plans to move, I think I'm going to spruce things up a little. My next trick will be to talk my landlord into getting the stucco power-washed. Right.
