Yup, wet weather here to stay again. Thomas, hope you and your garden are not falling under the "flood watch". I still have yet to catch up on my seed sowing. I did manage to pot up my two Polbig seedlings this weekend out in the cold, cold shed where they gave off steam as soon as soon as their toasty roots were exposed to the frigid air. Into the cow 'poo pots' they went, the pots don't smell anything like manure, but they have a bit of an unpleasant odor when sniffed (I can't help it, I smell everything). It is so exciting to have something that looks like a tomato plant growing.
I have seeds germinating in coffee filters that need to be transferred into soil blocks, I really must try and accomplish this task today.
This past weekend we were busy trying to finish up the re-do of my son's room. I needed to break down a 30 gallon aquarium and downsize it into his new 14 gallon aquarium, which was placed on his new desk. Then my darling husband removed the radiator covers off the walls and scraped, sanded, and washed the walls and ceilings that have not been painted already. It is amazing what years of saltwater drips/spray can do to a room and it's contents.
We laid down hardwoods and painted one half of the room over the last month or so, then moved all of his new furniture over....so now we are working on the second half. Here is the 'old' half, followed by the proud new owner in the 'almost done half':
We love salty critters here in my house, and my son and I both have some new aquarium inhabitants arriving tomorrow which will be fun but time consuming since the fish and invertebrates require such long acclimation times.........seed sowing is on the back burner again. I am going to be really sorry when I have no Sorrel and Arugula to eat in May! (oh, and as a side note the seedlings under the hoops stayed toasty during our cold spell, though they were a bit purple from the lower temps. Is it phosphate they can't take up in the cold that causes the discoloration?? I can't remember.)
