Annie, I've got several things sown by the winter sowing method but will probably not start the early indoor sowings until early March. In the past, I've started earlier but they tend to germinate fairly quickly and then get leggy or die off before I get them outside. Cool about those yellow containers!!!

I just have to laugh at your three pages long To Do List. You could have taken the words right out of my mouth. My list is probably as long, is no where near finished either, is now organized by gardening areas, and I love crossing things off but on the flip side feel overwhelmed when I realize how much doesn't get crossed off. I wonder how many of our listed tasks are the same Rolling on the floor laughing

Probly a lot of duplication in the To Do lists, Terri. I think what is most frustrating is when I cross off one thing and immediately think of 3 more to add. But I'm trying not to get to discouraged about things that don't get crossed off...a lot of times I use the To Do list to remind me of ideas and projects I'd like to try. I might not get to them for years, but at least they are there to remind me.

Holey Moley, just as I'm typing this a huge gust of wind hit the house and it's snowing like crazy! sort of a rain/snow mix. I hope it keeps coming; we are so dry here.

Thru trial and error I found that starting my cabbages, tomatoes and peppers on valentine's day seems to work best. I don't try to start flowers indoors...I just don't have the room. I don't care if some stuff gets a bit leggy indoors...it seems to do OK once I get it out in the veg.

Hey, just a few more days until you are FREE! I bet you can't wait!

Hugs, Annie
The end is nothing, the journey is all.
