Holy Tundra, Batman!

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, WWOOF USA, and a new site I found at 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 husband and i felt very comfortable Peter could complete his survey via the ideas he gained from your own web page. It's not at all simplistic to just continually be giving away hints men and women might have been trying to sell. And we all figure out we've got the website owner to give thanks to because of that. The entire illustrations you've made, the simple website navigation, the friendships you can make it easier to promote - it's mostly great, and it's helping our son and us believe that that issue is enjoyable, and that's exceptionally vital. Many thanks for the whole thing!
