We're expecting rain in the next few days, so I my put them out to get some natural rain if it's not coming down too hard.
Mississippi Brown Cotton
These are from some white cotton seeds I picked up on the side of the road in Brownsfield, Texas. Probably gonna be some kind of Franken-cotton, but we'll see.
John has finished the Squash House - he made a smaller bed on the inside of each side for me to plant pole beans in.
Turk and Grey are very interested in what he's doing....
I have about 20(something) tomato seedlings now, in various stages of growth. Several cabbages going, some regular head cabbage and two different types of Chinese cabbage.

I'm starting several types of basil this year. Blue Spice, Globe, Lettuce Leaf, Licorice, Holy, Purple Ruffles, and Italiano Classico have all sprouted and are on the go. African Tree Basil and New Guinea Basil have not and I think I'll have to start over.
The fruit trees are all budding and some have burst forth with blooms. They are truly beautiful when in bloom - and so attractive to bees! Someone's honey bees have been here every single day just busy working these trees. They make quite a racket.

I'm finally having some success with the pepper seeds - the new ones I planted have started to pop out of the dirt. Red Cheese peppers, Lipstick peppers and I found one of the earlier ones had sprouted - one of the Stocky Golden Rooster. Looks like I'll have some sweet peppers after all!
