So a Happy First Day of Spring to you!


Of course that assumes that you live on the Northern Hemisphere.  I’ve been sitting here watching the sun duck in and out of the clouds.  One minute it’ sunny and the next it’s all clouded over.  It’s like that here in central Minnesota.  But it’s all good since Marc is rapidly slipping away and April isn’t that far away now.

My little indoor potato growing experiment had to be terminated.  Man were those things starting to smell God awful.  Plus the water was getting awfully slimy.  It’s all OK tho since it taught me what I wanted to know.  My problem is that I was two months too early with doing this.  I’ve made all sorts of mental notes on this and I know where I’m going with this.  We’ll come back to this and try again around mid-May.

In the mean while we will be working on a different experiment this weekend.  I think I’ll get me one or two of those trays where we just plant the seed in pre-filled trays, water and keep under a grow light.  I think I can start my peas that way and transfer once the beds thaw out and warm up some more.  It will give the girls something to help with.

I think this is the part where you are to write something clever and witty about yourself. I’m solidly locked in middle age and content with myself. I love to travel to see and experience new things, new foods and new drink. I also like to cook and bake mainly because I like to eat. And I found out that I’m pretty good at both. I'm not a professional blogger nor do I want to be. I'll leave that to others while I'll kick back and post whatever suddenly pops into my brain. I'm more spontaneous anyway. And the rest we’ll just kinda sorta figure out as we go along. Feel free to leave comments or even just to say "Hello". Find me at:

      1. LOL. I saw them in a marijuana shoppe there. I was interested in how I could grow herbs like rosemary, thyme, sage, chives, etc. indoors. I figured if anyone would have a system, a marijuana store would plus have the expertise on how to set one up.

  1. Soak your peas in water for about a day and you can plant them as soon as you can work the soil. They’ll take a little cold and maybe even frost.

    1. yeh, I soak the seeds overnight. it’s still awfully cold at night here and you can always have a late season snow. I’ll start them indoors and go from there.
