|A few years ago, Hubs bought me this most wonderful little greenhouse with a seedling heat mat. I guess that he wasn't all that thrilled that I was using our heating pad to try to get my little seedlings moving along.|
I'm excited to get growing! My sister and I are trading seeds. I'm giving her my leftovers of last year's seeds (what I used this year) and in trade, she'll get me the starter potatoes that I need to get rolling. Potatoes are my new addition this year. I'll be growing them in a large plastic laundry bucket. I need to read up on what potatoes require. I know nothing about sun, food or whatnot. I do have organic veggie food, so I figure that to toss that in won't be a bad thing, but we'll see what the instructions tell me. Anyone with previous potato growing experience, feel free to give me some guidance.
Smiles in my weekend:
- Decent weather.
- Hubs and I were able to tackle the puppet show project and came up with a pretty good show between the two of us. He had a skeleton of a program that needed to be tweaked and re-worked in some spots.
- I've had a crocus in a vase in the middle of the table for the last few days. Silly, I know, but you have to use what you've got. K- brings them to me and though it is only the bloom, I can't bring myself to pitch it.
- My seed soil was on rebate at Ace Hardware and I had a $5.00 coupon that I earned. Between the two, for $13.00 worth of merchandise, my cost is 35 cents.
- Blueberries on sale at the store for BOG2. K- was very pleased. They also had giant grapes on sale.
Have a great day!
To note: I'm really not that precious about my photos. If they end up being picked up on internet searches (which they have), at least it gives someone a reference point of where to go for the original post.
