Alpine Mignonette Strawberries

I transplanted the remaining 11 seedlings into the own pots today. I used part potting mix, part peat moss, and part plain garden dirt, all doped with a bit of strawberry food. I put six into individual plastic 5" pots.

The remaining 5 went into a wooden window box planter. I had to use more peat there for the underlaying layer. I also used an old, loosely woven rag (one of those cheap 'shop rags' works great, as long as it isn't gunky) to act as a screen for the drainage holes in the bottom of the planter box.

Holy cow, they look small and wimpy compared to the outside! Then again, they were intended as office plants, not garden plants. In a week or so I get to go over to my old company and deliver some to people who wanted them.

Ye gods, it was hot outside... I'm wiped.

It snowed this morning. Then it rained. Then it snowed again. Is there anywhere in this country where the climate is habitable?

Reno was pretty decent - one of our five alloted decent days of the year - and I was stuck indoors.

Having lived in six states from New York to the midwest, California and now Florida, I would say that SAn Jose, climate wise is pretty good. The earthquakes and mudslides are a drawback.

I like where I am now as it rarely goes below freezing and we usually have only about two weeks of the year when the temperature is above 100. Air conditioning takes care of that. I am in NORTHERN Florida. Anything Orlando and below is too humid. Check out Gainesville, Florida and/or Jacksonville. WE have a bit of tornado and hurricane worry, but not much for earthquakes, just the occasional sink hole, and there are lots of trees and uninhabited land about.
