Earth Day... and Update

Looks like spring is finally here. The weather is much better today. Hopefully that means we will be able to get these seedlings in the ground, or well, in their outdoor containers. How they will love the great outdoors of Dupont Circle, DC.

So far, most of our little friends are still alive. But, sadly, the cilantro is gone and two of the cherry tomato seedlings are looking pretty droopy. I think they are about to die as well.

But, I am still full of hope. After we get these planted (in the next week maybe), we are going to start some more seeds and populate another friend's deck with containers.

On another note, while I will be out of town again this weekend, some of my friends will be attending the spectacular events and workshops this weekend and will fill us in on the blog soon.

Two fantastic workshops are:

  1. Family Urban Gardening: The Best Vegetables to Grow in D.C presented by the Historical Society of Washington (HSW), DC Urban Gardeners, and Washington Gardener Magazine. 4/18/2009 from 1:00 - 2:30pm (

  2. Container Gardening presented by Common Good City Farm, information available at:

Look for other ways to celebrate Earth Day (April 22) here:

Whatever you are doing this weekend, enjoy some of this wonderful weather. I think this weekend is going to be a great start to the new season, and I'm looking forward to the next steps in our gardening adventure.
