    The planting season is almost over, so the sooner the better. {here anyway. It might be later where you are at} And they do better if you plant them when it's cold. A good rain afterwards helps too.

    Hope they do good for you. I have about 20-25 red cedar seedlings that I dug up when I was cutting the fire line around the longleaf pines. They are all together in one pot. I water them when I give the cats water, so they are still alive, but I have to do something with them soon.

    thanks, they should.

    pines are a little discolored per seller because of very cold temps. trees definitely still alive and he said they will green up in spring.

    Still no sprouts on my pepper planting. Feb 15-17 are good above ground days. I'm going to plant a few tomato seeds then.

    only one of my pepper plants came up and it didn't open up and grow.

    Wow, I'm real jealous of you guys, both in the weather you're having, and the land you have available. Won't be warm enough for outdoor planting here for another 6-8 weeks.

    Here are my thrift store seeds. I paid a dime each for them.

    I dug a 3 foot deep hole in the garden. When the sprouts come up, I'll pot them and put them in there with a couple of shower doors over them on cold nights. I'm sure we will have more frosts.

    I've always imagined building a few walipinis when I have land of my own to work with. Earth, 2x4's, and plastic covering.

    Here is my old one from the 1st post in this thread. Last year I filled it in with used soil and turned it into my pepper pit.

    I have nine out of fifteen bell pepper plants above ground. Weather is going to be a little nicer tomorrow than today so I will probably start my tomato seeds. Trying to get an early jump on Spring this year.
