It was gorgeous outside today! According to the weather man, it was only 56F. Believe me, working out in the sun it felt much, much warmer. After I got the seeds planted and under their humidity domes, I headed out to construct a leaf bin in my "compost corner". I had a section of porch railing that we removed from the patio last fall, which worked well for one side after adding extra pickets. The existing fences were utilized for two sides, and I framed up a piece of lattice for the removable front. I used zip ties to hold it in place, so I can just cut them to take off the entire panel to get to the contents. I got most of the many bags of chopped leaves dumped into it, but I'll have to let them settle for a few days before I can add the rest of them.
I still have a bit of tweaking to do, two more pickets to cut, paint and add on to one side, but it's looking much better than the stack of black plastic bags that used to be there. I'll soon have this corner all cleaned up and lookin' good.
I have seedlings growing everywhere!
Spinach, leeks and lettuce in the mini-greenhouse in the shed.
All tucked in for the night. I'm keeping the light on at night for warmth, but letting them stay really cool all day.
Lettuce, cabbage and broccoli, along with bags of seed potatoes, in the laundry room window. As soon as these seeds germinate, they'll go out to the shed.
Peppers on the warming lights in the bedroom.
