Holy Tundra, Batman!

Posted by Kimberli on 6 January, 2014 at 22:05

Wouldya lookit that! The thermometer doesn't even GO that low! Here in Iowa we are hunkered down with space heaters that are helping our furnace keep up with the arctic blasts & windchills, plastic and blankets over doors and windows, and frozen pipes are sure keeping us hopping. I believe someone said that even our HIGH temperatures are record LOW temps for this time of year.

But I got a seed catalog in the mail on Saturday. That's two now, and they're my two favorites.  I have a couple of large Rubbermaid containers full of seed. And soil -- compost, organic potting mix, organic seed starting mix -- ready to go into containers to start a little indoor garden. Spring is 70 days away, my friends, but I need some green NOW! I have sprouted chia, radish, alfalfa, mung bean, lentil and some mix a friend gave me. I potted up the mint starts that have been on the windowsill in pretty jars and bottles since fall. I even started picking through more of those basil seed heads to see just how much I really did "save" this year.

I've also been perusing helpers on www.helpx.net, WWOOF USA, and a new site I found at www.workaway.info and really enjoying the wonderfully passionate, diverse and adventuresome travelers I am reading about and hoping to meet.

So I take a deep breath (inside, not outside! brrr), get out the seeds and get ready for inventory. Then comes the sketches again, the ones I may or may not adhere to come spring. Hot cocoa? Sounds good. Old movies? Sure. Clean the old box of a house? Meh -- if I gotta. Maybe tomorrow... because I am NOT going outside til FRIDAY!

See you soon!

My wife and i got really contented when Raymond managed to complete his web research with the precious recommendations he grabbed from your very own site. It is now and again perplexing to simply happen to be offering helpful hints which usually many people have been trying to sell. So we figure out we have got the writer to give thanks to because of that. The main explanations you have made, the straightforward web site menu, the relationships you can give support to foster - it is mostly great, and it is helping our son and the family do think this idea is fun, which is particularly mandatory. Thank you for all!

I precisely wished to thank you very much again. I do not know the things that I would have achieved in the absence of those aspects revealed by you regarding such area. It had become the fearsome crisis in my circumstances, but taking a look at the very expert style you processed that took me to jump for fulfillment. I am happy for this service and in addition have high hopes you really know what an amazing job that you're doing educating the others through the use of a site. I know that you've never got to know any of us.

I precisely desired to thank you so much all over again. I do not know what I could possibly have followed in the absence of the type of points revealed by you directly on such area of interest. Previously it was a real frightening problem for me personally, but understanding a specialized mode you dealt with that forced me to weep over fulfillment. I will be grateful for the assistance and then wish you are aware of an amazing job you are getting into educating men and women by way of a site. I know that you've never encountered any of us.
