I think that yesterday we narrowly escaped a foot of snow falling because a lot of areas in Canada got pounded with snow while we had rain! But...as you can see, the woods are still covered with a snowy white carpet. I tried to take the dogs in, but I kept sinking into puddles so we didn't get far. We stuck to the road just to be safe. I drove over to the other side of the river again this morning to walk them and we had no issues!
Last night we had pizza for dinner. I tried two new pizzas I'd never made before. Hawaiian (with Mozz, ham and pineapple); and Goat cheese with asparagus. Alex liked the Hawaiian - I'm not big on pineapples. And we both LOVED the Goat cheese with asparagus! It has Mozzarella too.
I've always been reluctant to "modernize" recipes...I'm a cheese-pizza lover! But I thought...why not try? Asparagus is in season right now and really inexpensive...plus it's the thin asparagus that I just go nutty over...so I went for a modern pizza. Well worth it! I still REFUSE to put lettuce on a pizza though! I'm not THAT modern!!!
Alex put up the extra shelf in my sunny window so I could keep planting! I've added two pots of cilantro, a pot of thyme and a pot of oregano.
I was a little behind in the labeling department, but I finally got my spinach and beets labelled! I decided what the heck, so I made labels for everything I planted this year so far.
I put the date that I planted them on the backs of the coffee sticks to remember when everything was planted. I planted some more seeds in those little seedling pots: green onions, tomatoes and Butter-crunch lettuce. I also planted a cherry tomato plant. My shelves are FULL. I'll take some pictures tomorrow. And...(I can't stop, I need an intervention!) I ordered more seeds...eegad. This time I ordered from a company I'd never tried before Veseys. Kymber from Framboise Manor mentioned that company so I checked them out and because I signed up for their newsletter, I got free shipping! :)
Alex was watching James Bond today, Goldfinger, and he called me up to see the glass that the ever-so-dashing (swoon) Sean Connery was sipping from. We are kind of cocktail glass fanatics...and I asked what he was drinking. Alex said "Mint Juleps"...so I got the bright idea that I NEEDED to grow mint for mint juleps lol...THUS...the latest seed order. I ordered mint, but I wanted to make the free shipping worth it, so I added some chamomile, rosemary (just in case my
dead rosemary plant is actually dead) and some more chives. Okay, I VOW this time to stop ordering seeds....didn't I just say that last month???
Our weather is really warming up quickly. This week I'll be in the yard raking and cleaning up the areas where I want to put my containers. I'm also going to try to build a raised bed or two. In the next few weeks, we have to get my porch all screened in too before the bugs come out. It's going to be a really fun time for me, I just love being outside!
