    Mostly foods, Stephanie. A lot of them are trannies — fruit masquerading as veggies (e.g. tomatoes), fruit masquerading as ornamentals (e.g. ground cherries), veggies or herbs masquerading as flowers (e.g. calendula), and four entirely gratuitous flowers out of 17 kinds of seedlings — unless someone has a good recipe for milkweed.

    Glad you approve, Goodbear! Cuca has been most gracious over the matter of his shrinking food station.

    Aren’t they growing up fast. I remember when they were just showing their faces, lol. When do they get to go out and play. Soonish, I suppose.

  3. Okay, I am totally stealing your use of “tranny” to describe my garden this year.

  4. I like your imaginative recycling of containers. What adorable tikes.

    I never thought of my tomatoes as trannies. I better tell Michelle to keep a lock on her wardrobe. Looks like you’ve got the prospects of a great garden this season. Hope it does well. Nothing quite as relaxing as poking around in the dirt & saving money on food at the same time. Enjoy

    Yes, Livingisdetail, they bring a tear to my lip. No, wait — it’s a bead of saliva.
    Our climate zone suggests frost-free days from May 16. For many Canadians, though,the Victoria Day Weekend is a popular time to transplant.

    It’s yours, Stephanie, as soon as I figure out how to install this Paypal button.

    I thought you’d approve, Barefootheart. It’s amazing how many suitable items there are once we start looking.

    Thanks, Tony. Actually, girl tomato plants with navy-and-white-striped neckties are particularly attractive, so you’d better watch your own wardrobe.

    Wow, any catnip? Sure does look inviting to dig in…..

    Yep, James, Turtle hangs out with a seedy bunch all right.

    Cuca has shown impressive self-restraint, Pennycat. A few pots were knocked off the windowsill the other evening, but only because Fergus decided to play Terrorize The Cat.
    No catnip seedlings yet; I’ve been afraid of attracting neighbourhood cats. But really, if all those swarms of sparrows haven’t brought a kitty stampede, a pot of catnip shouldn’t make much difference.
