The first seeds of the 2011 gardening season have been planted here at my not-very-urban homestead. Ok, it is only a little cup of parsley on the windowsill but still--- the first seeds of the year! A momentous moment. I'm hoping to start my leeks this weekend. V moved my grow light set up into the addition so it is all set and out of the kitchen for the remodel. The real seed starting will begin in March. We've still got 12 weeks to go before our average last frost.
And speaking of seeds, this is the last call for the Save the Bees seeds. I need to get those in the mail so let me know if you want some. I'll try to contact those who have already indicated they want some. If you want in, email me. I'm at gmail and you send it to fullfreezer. Pretty simple. Let me know your address and what you want. I've got Anise hyssop, Bee balm, purple coneflower, clary sage, nasturtium and poppies. I've got lots of other stuff as well- lots of odds and ends of black flowers from last year's Goth garden as well.
Oh, and the toilet works!!! Woo Hoo. It turns out that it was actually the filter in the new septic tank was clogged and draining too slowly. That's why it would flush sometimes but not after someone took a shower.
I am SO ready for the weekend. This has been a long week, it seems. I'm fighting an annoying cold- not one where I feel bad but one with a continuous post-nasal drip that makes me cough. Blah.
But, the weather has been fabulous! It was 60 today!! The snow is almost all melted and the creek is running full. It is really making me want to get out and work outside- unfortunately it is sloppy muddy at the moment. sigh... soon enough... it is only February.
