Sowing the Veg

I sowed some of the summer veg this weekend; 4 varieties each of tomatoes, eggplant and peppers, a whole tray of white and yellow zinnias, and a little bit of basil. I have a whole other tray that needs to be sown, but with only one seedling mat, they'll have to wait there turn. As usual, I sowed far too many tomatoes again this year, but I'm sure I can find people to share them.

Pruning the Roses

Ian and I spent 2 hours pruning back the roses this weekend. While it may be a little early to give them their annual haircut, we have had an extremely mild winter this year, and they should be just fine. We took them down by 1/3, trimmed off all the dead wood and culled out the weak branches. We have numerous scratches to show for all our hard work!
