my SCORE for the week, and my husbands comments for the week

Post  kiwirose on 2/6/2011, 2:47 am

So, my hubby got home from work the other day and had a choice comment I had to share with you. Often he doesn't notice things, so I quitely planted another 10-20 seeds each day until I have ~100 or so seed cells planted and under the lights under the kitchen cabinets - takes up A LOT of the cabinet space (nice and warm). He came home one night last week and said in a very understated tone - "Hmm, I knew your SFT finished in the kitchen, I didn't realize it started in the kitchen too" = I nearly died laughing it was so funny.

I have also been helping habitat for humanity this week. Usually volunteers help to build houses but I have been helping to de-construct a house - last week I got 2 large (30x32") window panes. I also got a ton of wood, and today I went back and got four 24 inch wide window pains and two more of the larger ones. I said to hubby today, if i am smart, I will build more boxes that are the same size as the larger windows so that next year I can have veges in the winter and I won't need to stalk the spinach man at the farmers market - I will be growing my own in the winter.

My stretch goal for late fall and winter 2011 is 3.5 season gardening lol - I am stocking up on supplies. Smile Yum - I am going through fresh vege (home grown) withdrawl - I have doubled my 2010 sq footage and think I will be adding even more - I NEED more tomatoes and want poatoes and sweet potatoes... oh how many more gardens to I want to add - and that is not even counting the fruit (trees, berries... mmm)

It sounds like you're off to a great start this year. Good luck to you.

I'm on the hunt for some used windows myself, so I can build some coldframes for winter sowing things like spinach, mizuna, claytonia, arugula, and carrots. It would be lovely to get fresh crops in the winter.

Happy early spring to you.

I have old windows just sitting around, hubby drug them home from a job he did, I need to get them out, scrape them, and seal around the panes, and get him to make me some cold boxes. Maybe by fall I'll have enough money saved to get me a thingy that opens and closes them automatically, those are COOL.
