More bathroom gardening
I was bored yesterday. It was cold (although not as cold as its been) and windy and I think I was fighting off some unknown ailment cause I just didn't feel right. Plus, on Saturday, I drove to Smoketown, excited to purchase the remainder of my seeds at Rohrer's. They were closed. Apparently not open on Saturdays until March! Arghhhhhhh! I can't wait until March! And only open normal business hours (8-5) monday thru friday! That totally sucked. I need to do something gardeny! I really want it to be spring sooner rather than later so I decided to start some seeds in the bathroom greenhouse window. I know it is too early, but I just wanted to play around with some dirt and seeds. So I started three little containers of stock seeds from my plants last year and in keeping with the tomato....three kinds of lettuce: Black seeded simpson, red sails, and Amish deer tongue. So we'll see. I just have this overwhelming urge to plant something, y'know? By the by, the tomato has one little bud on it! And I realized that although I think tomato foliage is stinky when you're crawling around in it weeding and it is humid and 85 degrees.....it smells heavenly in January.Bulb patrol has begun in earnest as I walk around the yard bundled so only my eyes are showing to see what is up and about. Snow drops will be blooming in a week or so. A few daffodils are poking their little heads aboveground and I have two lenten rose blossoms. I love the first flowers of the year. They aren't the showiest but they aren't needy and boy are they a sight for sore eyes at the tail end of January.
