Alison - welcome, and thanks for following the blog!
No pictures today, but there's still quite a bit to talk about!
First, I drove 90 miles roundtrip on Tuesday night to pick up a 20lb bag of UCG's from Starbuck's. Ha! I know....pretty crazy, but I just had to get that little bounty for my compost piles. It was probably 10 gallons of it, and i'll be making another run in about a week. Meanwhile, I have 2 local convenience stores saving theirs for me too. The owners love growing tomatoes in their gardens, and i'll give them free plants this year.
Second - i'm making some major modifications to the little propagation system that was made from an old aquarium stand. When finished, it'll be fully enclosed to keep the warmth of the lights inside, and also have some small cpu fans mounted in the top. The propagation shelves in the shed will have to wait until next year, because I need $300 worth of lights for them. So, i'll use the money made from this years' transplants to pay for them, and go big time next year. Woot Woot!
Third - I've been wintersowing stuff like crazy! Oh god....it's addictive, I tell ya! I'm doing all kinds of flowers, and even a couple types of early maturing tomatoes, too. Me likey.....
Fourth - My wife bought Jude a little frisbee from Pet Depot the other day, and she's happy again. Yay! I have to throw it kinda easy though, because it really flies well!
Other than that, i'm just waiting for the weekend to arrive, so I can get out there and turn at least one of the compost piles. The postholes for the turning system will be dug too, but you can bet that i'll wear the back brace. I'll have to remember to take it easy, because the injury is still not 100% healed yet. It's probably around 95%, and still bothers me when I stoop over for anything.
Well, that's about it. I'll be sure to take lots of photos over the weekend.
Take care, and happy gardening!
