It hasn’t been much of a winter… THANK GOODNESS! I don’t enjoy shoveling or plowing for that matter. And with my husband gone from time to time those not so enjoyable duties fall on my shoulders. So, I say again, thank goodness this winter has been so mild.
This mild winter has caused an itch. An itch to get my seedlings started. Yesterday my husband and I purchased a small portable greenhouse. Nothing fancy. Just sturdy and effective enough to start some seeds. This greenhouse will wonderful to put out on the porch on a semi-warm, sunny February day in Maine. It’s also portable enough to leave in our reading room that gets excellent sunlight.
I’m excited to start my broccoli, cabbage, peas, beans, chard, lettuce and brussel sprouts. The brussel sprouts on my husband’s idea, not mine. I’ve been saving eggs shells for about three months now. I’m using the egg shells as my seedling pots. They make great pots, and will be just as beneficial for the soil when they get in the ground.
Hurry spring! I know you’re close, but it’s just not close enough for me!
