Last night's crazy thunderstorms must be signaling the return of spring! Made good use of yesterday's weather and scraped out the soil from the bottom of the compost bin. I made dirt! Well, the worms did. Good job, worms! Today while the rain lingers and the temps dip outside, Nathan and I set some seeds inside...leeks and brussels sprouts, which are new for us, plus some kitchen herbs and daisies. Hurray for spring!


  1. What are you using for "greenhouses"- those clear plastic cover thingys? I've never seen them before, but I'm thinking that would be a good idea. 'Course now I'm trying to figure out how to do it out of soda bottles or rotisserie chicken

  2. Those are super tiny pots that say "Ken and Shannon 2002" that were leftover favors from our wedding, inside three plastic thingys that I purchased lettuce in over the past couple months. In the past I've used all sorts of strawberry containers and things like that too.

  3. love it!! your garden is always gorgeous and i can't wait to see it this year!
