Farmer Gertie is In the House

I started the morning with some major gardening. It's fairly getting warmer outside so I figured it's time to transplant the seedlings we've sproated early february.

 We sproated tomatoes, green peppers, carrots, corn and green beans. I can't wait to yield some organic veggies!

These guys survived the winter : Chives, tarragon, italian and sweet parsely

It was time to transplant the green beans they weren't doing well in the little pots for too long

Green and Red pepper seedlings

This is my lemon-grass and avocado seedlings. I'm so excited I didn't think they'd survive!
My sweet basil plant didn't survive winter so I'm planning to get some this weekend. They grow pretty fast through the year.

I got a couple of rose bushes and gladiolas that I planted last month. I've been wanting a flower garden for a while now -- it's still a work in progress.

The weather is a bit harsh here but we've been pretty successful growing herbs and tomatoes last year, so we're doing it again.

Gardening is added to my daily "workout" sessions. I'm tackling Jillian Michaels this afternoon and planning to walk Daisy.

Breakfast was home-made breakfast burrito and my high protein PB pops
Lunch is side salad with 1/2 pita bread and hummus
Dinner I'm thinking stuffed green peppers or chile relleno -- not sure yet :)
