Not too much has changed…we have less chickens these days, more dogs, and the about the same amount of cows.  Plants grow in this greenhouse now instead of eggs.  It’s fun looking back.

While most of the country is experiencing record cold, we’re sitting pretty high and dry and warm.  Not good for summer time water worries, but you can’t really do much about the weather anyway except go with the flow.

So while cats and cows nap, we started seeding a little bit in anticipation of the greenhouse soil drying out enough to begin gardening in earnest.

Our palates are numb from kale and other hardy greens.  Not complaining, just stating the facts.

I’ve learned over the years it doesn’t pay to be in too much of a hurry, I used to use grow lights and start my seeds inside to get a jump on things…only to find out that I got a jump on the plants, but the weather didn’t always cooperate.  Tender plants raised inside thrown to the wolves in the garden or even the unheated greenhouse usually ended in disappointment.

Looking back over my notes, last year I first seeded on February 23, so I’ve maybe gained a week this year.

I don’t want to get my hopes up that this weather will hold, but we’re on our way to spring.  T-shirt weather during February confirms that!
