The days are starting to get a little longer. Which means that even though we are still in the midst of winter, spring is around the corner. It amazes me how quickly time seems to pass these days. One day it's the dead of winter and the next thing you know it will be spring. Of course living in Oklahoma sometimes that could happen twice in the same week. ;o)
I've finally got my seed inventory done. I have no idea why it took me so long to sit down and do it. I'm happy to say that I don't really have a whole bunch of "holes" there this year. Herbs on the other hand are a totally different story. I'd really like to have a dedicated herb garden. It's something I've been wanting to do for a long long time. And of course having been looking through the seed catalogs, my wish list is long. I have most of the basic cooking herb seed. Sweet Basil, Cilantro, Greek Oregano, Rosemary, Thyme, Parsley and Sage. That's a good start I suppose. I planted chives last year so I'm hoping they'll winter well and we can have fresh chives again. I think I'm going to start some more of them too. I'd like to have some dried chives in my spice cabinet.
I got tomato seeds started today. I've tried a new DIY seed starter tray with them. I'll take some pictures and show ya'll how to make a great seed tray complete with watering trays on the cheap! (I'm charging the batteries AGAIN for the camera) It seems to work well so we'll see. I still need to get peppers, broccoli and cabbage started tomorrow. I'm going to try my hand (one more time) to get some cauliflower started. I've not had much luck with it the past two years and I'm not sure why or what I might be doing wrong. I can get them started just fine, they just don't "do" anything.
That's about all I've got for now. I've been keeping busy around the place but it's a winter sort of busy. I've been trying to figure out just how many jars of vegetables I should be aiming for. But in the end I guess it all comes down to what all grows. I'm still trying to find some time to work on my first afghan. It's still a work in progress. I'm still loving the Kindle Fire. I've found a couple of awesome places to to be able to search for hundreds of free books offered daily. I really really like this one that someone left in comments a few days ago. Its called Ereader IQ. It's got a customizable search engine that works great. Pretty cool!!
Mars is working on an awesome project right now. I'm taking pictures as it comes along and you can bet I'll share it all with you guys when it's done. I can barely contain my excitement!! This is a good one....
