Goofing Around

Wow, it's harder than I thought to remember to post a simple picture! Anyway, I was teaching the boys how to do hand stands and thought this would be a perfect picture to post!

Sorry, forgot to turn the pics!

Growing!

My favorite part of January is starting seeds! I have cucumbers and bell peppers started and now I'm waiting on my tomatoes, green tomatoes and chilis! I will also have more started soon but I'm out of peat pots! On the 30th I'll be attending a seed exchange as well so I can get some new cool seeds to grow as well!

Easy seed starter. Instead of spending the money on a Jiffy Greenhouse, this year I used a cake pan and covered it on plastic wrap. As you can see it works perfect!


My cucumbers! I have 2 regular cucumbers and 2 yellow lemon cucumbers.

Once my seeds are sprouted they are moved to the window seal to grow till it's time to replant!
