My plants took a bit of a beating from hail last week but otherwise things are shaping up.
It seems like all my flowers have bloomed at once.
It’s such a welcome sight. But….
they are saying frost warnings for tonight.
Wow. Isn’t it June?
Hard to believe it was in the nineties last week and now they say there may be frost tonight.
I am hoping they are wrong. We will see what happens.

The Gearcor Company Garden is still in the planning stages since the weather will not cooperate at all. We have gone from really cold weather to very warm with so much rain you couldn’t think of building raised beds out there just yet. But soon we will.
So we continue to dream of the day when our seedlings will be able to be planted outdoors. In the meantime, we have transplanted some and they all continue to grow.
And we wait…..
On a very positive note.
our mystery seeds are germinating at last.
* We are using Haven Brand Compost Teas to nourish our plants and we are happy to say they are now available from GardenShoesOnline.

All of us at Gearcor are enjoying watching the progress of the seeds we have planted, especially Mike who is proudly showing us the flourishing seedlings.
He has taken great care to make sure they are watered and happy ~ he sings to them when no one is around. (Oops sorry Mike, you didn’t want me to mention that did you?) ;)
It was difficult for Mike and Pete when I thinned out the seedlings with a pair of scissors so as not to disturb their roots.
We repotted the ones that were big enough to move up a pot and composted the ones that didn’t make the cut. (Sorry guys!)
The weather is still very unpredictable here in upstate NY. It was 65 yesterday and spitting snow today so we can’t even think about putting our plants out there yet.
Everyone is trying to be involved, even the dogs.
Blondie and Sophie took off with one of the fiber pots and chased each other until it ended up in a shredded pile on the floor.
Now the seedlings are tucked carefully into their inside greenhouse, left to continue their growth while we wait patiently for the weather to allow us to plant them outside.
We have also planted some seeds that we are very excited about.
Check back as they grow to see what the interesting mystery plants are.
