January 15, 2008

Late night at work, so short post...

Well, it's Thursday, and the weather's improving a bit.  Supposed to be in the mid 50s this weekend, so I thought I would talk about a to-do list.  Kinda like spring already huh?  Hehe.

Let's see, I've got to clean up some of the damage that the deep freeze left and assess what I should keep and what may grow again.  I'd also like to plant some succession lettuce, radishes and maybe even some carrots (I wonder if I can plant those this early, think winter sowing, hehe).  Then I should really secure my hoop covers together with bolts.  Twist ties just don't work in our windy winters.  I guess I was just being lazy.

Oh, and I want to shop for some materials for several new SWCs and a light system.  That means PVC (I'm going to try the one a reader left the plans for in a comment THANKS!), light fixtures, a timer, 18 gallon bins, dollar store baskets, etc.  Quite the shopping trip.

Lastly, I hope to finally place some seed orders so I can start planting the early stuff.  I'm getting the gardening bug and I get to garden (sort of).  Hehe, funny thing... my good buddy Granny got the gardening bug, and finally built a real garden at her home in Arizona.  Head on over to her blog to see her plants race the clock to beat her leaving back to Washington State so she can enjoy the produce.

Enjoy your garden!


  1. I can't wait to see your light system! Post pics when you get it built :-) Have a great weekend!

  2. LOL, Sinfonian, that's not a REAL garden! It's kind of a semi-real garden, and you got me itching to do it.

    It sounds like you are getting the itch, too ;-)
