I guess I don't need to repeat my angst again...winter winter please go away! The huskies do love it though...
Yesterday we didn't feel like having a proper lunch and I'd forgotten I had a lone bag of tortilla chips in the cupboard that I bought, last month, the month before...???...out of sight, out of mind really does work! Anyway, we made a Mexican Dip and watched a movie in bed. I'm so happy that the chives I bought last July have kept producing all winter long! I'm taking such good care of them so they'll keep growing for a long time! :)
I decided yesterday evening, the heck with waiting...I'm starting my garden! Well, at least my window garden! :) I planted parsley in two pots, I use a lot of that and my old plant died in January.
After reading a little more about cold weather crops, and with a suggestion from my Year Round Vegetable Gardener book...I decided to start some spinach and beets. I only did 6 pots of each with 2 seeds in each pot as a trial. In the book, the author says that these two (of many) crops will withstand frost and cold weather, so I'm going to transplant these outside when they are ready - despite the weather. I'm hoping that I will have something to harvest in late May when I'm starting to plant my summer garden. I'm trying to implement the ideas of the year-round gardening!
The basil is coming up nicely!
And the original lonely lemon is gradually continuing to yellow! I know it needs more sun and so do I!
So with the yellowing lemon, I have five growing! The four small ones all started blooming in February. I never thought I'd get lemons. I always thought of them as a southern crop, but it just goes to show that anything is possible!!!
So this is my window garden. As you can see, I'm being stubborn...I just don't want to toss the rosemary bush out, even though all bets are on that it's done. I'm going to put it outside this summer anyway. It can find it's way back to the earth!
Last night we had the rest of the fish and chips with my Homemade Tartar Sauce. Another Mel Brooks movie under our belt and it was an early night. The wind was howling last night as it poured rain. When I woke up to snow this morning, all I could do was roll my eyes!
