February 2021 Week 2

WHAT? Week 2 of February. I want time to slow down. I was so cavalier about not starting seeds too early that now I'm in a bit of a panic. Since there will be NO planting outdoors this coming week because of the blast of cold air all week, I guess I will begin slow growing and/or hardy flowers and greens on the grow cart instead. Slow growing, thinking of coleus--cool weather, alyssum, nasturtiums. Danny, wasn't it you who successfully grew sweet peas a year or two ago? I tried them a couple years in a row and didn't have any luck, so gave up. It's time to get the berry bushes in, but again, not going to happen this week. The weather forecast isn't quite as dismal as it was two days ago, but still not a walk in the park, with lows in the teens and highs in the 20s for 2-3 of the days. I'll get this thread begun and see you later today. Stay warm and comfortable indoors, everyone!
