Fertilizer Friday/ Flaunt Your Flowers! Feb 26/10

Fertilizer Friday is the day when gardeners from all over the world join in and share the blooms of their labors! After an incredibly busy and stressful week, it is nice to know I can relax and take a peek at some of the loveliest blogs-and the gardens they showcase....
If you are new to this party...WELCOME!!! If you are a regular...WELCOME BACK! Anyone can post plants of any are all welcome...the more the merrier!
Now...if you are not familiar with the winter rules will be...since I have ZERO to gardens are bare...I (and other gardeners in similar climates) are sharing our favorite photos from months, gardens, years gone by, or the current indoor gardens and houseplants that they have. Those who have real live beauty to share are doing just that!
I would like to add, that if you are not a may still join in. The name Fertilizer Friday actually was coined to remind those of us who like to feed our greens, but forget! Fertilizing is not a must...but the flaunting...IS!
Please Publish the Fertilizer Friday Logo at the top of this post, and link into the mister linky list below. If you do not do this, you may not get as many "tourists" visiting your Friday post.

So? What are we waiting for? Feed your flowers/ houseplants...gardens...snap some photos, link in and Flaunt with me!
My offering for this week brings a smile to my face. I have been in the greenhouse!!! I got to spend 4 full hours in there this week.

My little Geraniums got to be transplanted to larger pots!
There are more this year than any other year...but not as many as I had originally thought...The germination of the seed this year was not as high as previous years. This is kind of a I ran out of pot trays!!!
When I first transplant the tiny seedlings, I have to soak them in the chemical solution to help prevent damping off disease from wiping out my Geranium crop...I haven't even counted the pots that I planted I'm not quite sure exactly how many I have! lol I'll have to get back to ya on that one! I can say it is around the 200 or more mark.
Then...I did a little seed planting. Pansy was up this week...and next week, but I only got a few done.
This is not the actual is a photo of the seed packet.
This is what pansy seeds look like.
I use the 9 cell packs for one seed in the center of each little cell, and cover with 3mm (1/8 inch) of soil....water from below...and wait.
And there they are...6 trays done so far! I hope to have lots more to share next week, as I plant when Busy is at school...and there are a lot of little seeds waiting some soil!!!
Thanks for joining me for a tiny tour of my greenhouse today. I hope you will stop and put your name in the mister linky below, grab my logo above and share some flowers with me this week!
Next week, stay tuned for an update on my Lufah plants, and an education on how to grow them. So many have asked, so I'm preparing a post...also...I am planning a post on how to paint the furniture that I shared's a busy Tootsie around here!!!
Have a safe and happy weekend friends!
