Pretty sunny morning as the snow continues to melt. Cold frame is already at 82 degrees. The top number is the other part of the temperture gauge (the 57.9 is apparently the temperature of some cold closet in my house). Also, check out the bulbs coming up. I have no idea what they are...
I got a package from Renee's Garden yesterday. In included seeds of cosmos and the spitfire nasturtiums. The nastys are a part of a garden blogger experiment, check it out --> http://grow.gardenbloggers.com/
As part of this experiment, I am encouraged to blog about my experiences, successes, and failures.From the grow.gardenbloggers.com website, the following are a few 'Ideas for topics after the 1st month: growth rate, what kinds of insects are visiting your plants, what kind of fertilizer are you using, how are you using the plant in your garden, what uses are you finding in the home and kitchen for the plants, photo essays, video reports, and an artist? show us your painting or crafts created from your plants and flowers.'
I'll volunteer Julia to tackle a few of those topics. I have only just begun to brainstorm about different ways I can experiment with seeds. (Obligatory end of blog post questioning) Do yoooouuu have any ideas?!
This is a blog that I started as a resource for my gardening adventures. I hope to add to this blog each year as I continue to garden and, hopefully, get better at it by utilizing the information here as well as learning from my past experiences. You will also find some writings in the earliest posts in regards to some of my beliefs in regards to how we, as people, should garden, farm, and eat. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or would like to chat more about these topics. Thank you for stopping by!
I will try to keep a running total of all costs associated with gardening.
