    We had a great spring week last week getting up to the 80's, but this week it's back in the 40's and 50's and stormy. So i'm ready to have the 80's back. Couldn't imagine having snow right now though. Maybe it will warm up soon for you guys. We are planning a garden this year too. My husband made me a compost container, so i was pretty excited about that. I'd like to grow some cilantro for pico de gallo and dill for pickling. Wish i had some advice for the tomatoes, but it's my first time trying tomatoes also. Hopefully we will both have great success growing them.

    Oh, I'd love to hear some tomato tips as well!! We bought a raised bed set up and I planted 4 different types of tomatos....they grew almost to the roof of the house (1 story! hha) but the tomatos only got big and green and then rotted! This has been 2 years in a row and it's driving me nuts! I did find some big green tomato worms on them but they were just eating the plant leaves and stripping them, I don't think they could have made the green tomatos rot...hmmm.. I would think if your enclosed porch is super sunny, that would be great! I have afreiend who grows hers in those huge kitty litter tubs and does great, but hers are outside....You may not need pesticides on the inside (which I didn't use outside either, which may explain the problem...)

    I think we also planted oregano, thyme, parsely, mint and BASIL....oh my god, NOTHIING tastes as good as fresh sweet basil to me! I can't wait!! Oh gee, and I just look out the window and it's snowing ....it was 80 last week. :(

    P.S....your kitty may try to use the soil as a litter box, even if it's small...so just FYI..hah
