Another installment of “As The Garden Turns”

Before I forget:

Seeds of Change is doing an incredible thing: The Sowing Millions Project!  You get an obscene amount of seeds (25 packets) for only the cost of shipping ($4,99) plus they donate matching amounts to the American Horticultural Society.  If you belong to an organization (say, a community garden or something), you can get an even obscener amount of seeds (100 packets) for $14.99 shipping.  Very cool stuff.  Big thanks to Dawn at GardenWeb for the heads up!

Steve & Cody have been working to get the first tunnel trellis done.  They’re very close now and might have already finished had they not run out of baling wire.  (Don’t they take away their Manly Men membership cards for doing things like running out of duct tape and baling wire??)

In other news:  I’m up to my eyeballs in sprouting seeds, spending hours in the basement each day, plopping them into dirt-filled cups.  I’m gonna need more lights — or hope for the cold spells to stay far, far away so I can carry them all outdoors every morning for some real sun (and back indoors every evening so they don’t freezer their buns off).  Man, I miss my greenhouse.  *sob*

And the master bathroom is currently overrun with other started seeds.  (They don’t call it a “garden tub” for nothing!)  Once sprouted, they’ll move down to the basement as well.  Or outside.  Or both.  Or maybe Josie and the cats will conspire against me in order to make one, very large and messy mud pie out of them all one day when I’m not looking.  At least the worms would enjoy it.  Yep, that’s the vermicompost set-up under there.  Our bathrooms multi-task, people.

    LOL
    I got the seed deal through Seeds of Change! I am just waiting for it to come in! Very exciting!
    The kids are going to start a big vermicomposting station for a science project. We love worms too! :)

      Very cool, Andi! I can’t wait to see what comes in mine. And even cooler about the vermicomposting! Our worms are still doing well. They’re kind of boring because you just feed them once a week or so and, other than that, they’re not terribly exciting. LOL
