Woke up this morning to light snow falling on top of the 4 inches that came down overnight. Wet snow, good sized flakes, floating to the ground. Free water from the sky, as my friend Ty would say.
One would be forgiven if they immediately thought of skis or snowshoes. I thought of my garden. It’s mid-March, time to get planting!
I have a great spot in my office for a seed starter setup (say that three times fast) with a shade that nicely diffuses the harsh mid-day sun that pours in – it’s a perfect spot. Seattle Seed Company has a fantastic selection of seeds online, especially heirloom and organic varieties – and their customer service is fantastic!
Mixed up a bucket of super good seed starter soil – making it extra moist gives the seeds a great boost right off the bat!
Using a cocktail spear (who has THOSE laying around? ;-), I poked 4 holes in each compartment of my starter kit, and dropped two seeds of each variety down into the depths.
Boom – half hour, over a hundred bucks in vege’s started for about 3 bucks in seeds – and not shipping lettuce in from Mexico in big trucks. Looking forward to getting these in the ground – along with my direct-sow seeds – in the next few weeks!
I have a tough time with product reviews. Maybe because I am reasonably methodical and measured in learning about products before I buy them. I despise waste,
After my blog post on the Darkness of Coffee a couple of weeks ago, I got a question from a friend…
The nation is reeling today, a day after the horrific events in Newtown, Connecticut. So unnecessary. So disturbing. So troubling.
