Busy Spring days (although, technically it’s still winter)

We have a big office calendar on our fridge.  When we use it – it helps Greg and I keep track of who’s coming and when, where we need to be, what we need to buy, and why we’re starting to go crazy.  You can tell we’re on the up hill journey towards craziness when you see that a whole week is covered in chicken scratch.  Then, throw in the activities of a toddler (library & swimming – not that overwhelming) and the week is over before you know it!

Yesterday was a big day – our potting soil arrived from Ohio Earth Food.  Granted, we had a few bags left over from last year – but now we are prepared to go full steam ahead.  We’re not eager to heat up the greenhouse when it’s 3 degrees outside – so we’ve maximized the warmth and coziness of our laundry/furnace room.  We can start 30 trays of something there – and that’s just what we did.  We’ve got herbs, flowers, peppers, eggplants, tomatoes, leeks and onions started and will still plant broccoli, cabbage, kale and other leafy greens (almost all of an heirloom variety or another) by the end of the week.
