With the weather turning cold and blustery, I am turning inward~ toward my home.
Home is always food. And loving people. Or I should say: people I am loving.
I’m also starting my garden in the basement. It’s early but I don’t care.
Of course in a couple of months I’ll be frustrated trying to wrangle root bound, leggy plants bursting from their small containers.
I’m starting tomatoes, peppers and petunias. Oh and snapdragons.
Snaps have a seed-to-bloom time of 120 days! That’s a long time! I have had pretty good experiences with peppers and tomatoes but I’ve not started flowers in the basement.
I am starving for color. Just the thought of beautiful blooms in a secret basement garden is a delicious daydream. More on that tomorrow.
One more note~ we have eggs!!! I think we are back in the egg business!
Willow will be so happy!
Today’s count: 16 eggs.
What’s for supper: Breaded pork chops with sweet potatoes and wedge salad with homemade blue cheese dressing.
Weather: Isolated snow showers after 11am. Partly sunny, with a high near 31. Calm wind. Chance of precipitation is 20%. Tonight a 20 percent chance of snow showers. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 8. Calm wind.
