- Planted ten Foxgloves (Foxy) and five Delphiniums, from 4" pots I bought at DeBary Nursery. I don't like buying seedlings, but both of these are a bit of a challenge to grow from seed in time for them to bloom in early spring.
- Pricked out a bunch of Poppies of unknown type from my good gardening friend Jane.
- Planted twelve peas ('Cascadia' and 'Knight'): It's been frustrating with these peas: I've planted them twice now, with only a fraction of them getting to the seedling stage. I think I'm planting them too deeply & the mulch smothers them before they can germinate. So this time I put them in six-by nursery flats in straight up vermiculite, then into a mini-greenhouse. We'll see... Should be easy to transplant.
- Picked a bunch of collards and lettuces. Red Sails continues to be outstanding in my garden.
- Cleaned up the saplings around my oak trees, laid out newspapers, and covered the area with straw and leaves. I'm going to plant the new Sasanqua camelias that I purchased from the (very much improved) 'Place in the Son' nursery. (I'll leave aside the whole nonsense of a Christian-based business... they run a good ship there and have the BEST selection of camelias and azaleas I've seen in the area.)
- Planted the two dwarf Citrus (a tangerine and a Hamlin orange).
- Planted the Flordabell Peach tree.
- Potted up some of the rooted cuttings from my greenhouse, including a really attractive Begonia I got at a plant trade.
