Found a storm door on Freecycle.org in my area and created a makeshift cold frame to protect the collard babies while they hardened off. So far they have come through 18 degrees and 2 inches of snow followed four days later by a 70 degree weekend... can anyone spell climate change? Moved some out to the raised bed since we need to make room for more seedlings in the *cold frame*.

Watching the seeds grow...Feb. 9, 2009
Tomato seedlings (18 varieties) are up and growing... A few cells haven't come up but most are up - can't wait to see how the different varieties do. Thought this would be a year of experimenting in heirloom varieties, different organic fertilizers and different mulches... will keep a journal and try to dtermine which do best in my zone 7 hot and humid summers in raised beds.
