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!
