We’re doing that getting-ready-for-the-2016-growing-and-eating-season thing. We’ve been up-potting hundreds of pepper plants, will be doing the same with the tomato seedlings tomorrow, we are constantly seeding new plants and raised beds in the greenhouse, following up on planted peas, watering which can only be done by bringing warm water from inside the house so we don’t shock the poor little plants and keeping up on sprout and shoot growth. The perennial herbs are all coming back nicely - parsley, sage, thymes, oregano, sorrel, mint (which I didn’t plant), winter savory. The basils we started are doing nicely too.

Being inside has its advantages though. I’ll make granola for you today as it needs to be timed, I can’t wander too far. My house might get a light cleaning too, maybe. We bring in so much gunk on our boots these days, it’s hard to keep up. We start our days walking on frozen ground back and forth. By the end of the day we’re slopping through mud everywhere. You gotta love spring.
