In My Life

-----Too early to wake up. The wind is only going about 15 miles per hour...but it is gusting so strongly that it is keeping us up. Sigh.
-----It was supposed to get very cold today. Now the forecast is saying that it will reach 60 degrees. I wonder if the winds and 80% chance of rain will cancel any warmth out.
-----At least yesterday was nice and we expected that to be the last nice weather day. Little One and I went on a long walk and played until it started getting cold. Treasures were found, tiny pinecones, sticks and a big pebble.

-----When I get a chance, I am likely going to remove "Norton Confidential" from this computer. All it does is crash. Thanks HP, for installing this lovely bit of annoyance.

----I noticed that Free Comic Book Day for 2013 will be on May 4. That is awesome as it will also be "May the 4th Be With You."
-----I sent for the Pottery Barn Teen catalog (FREE). I want to get a feel for if it has anything that some of my nieces might like. I have no clue what kind of decor Pottery Barn has for teenagers.

-----I sent for the Burpee 2013 catalog. I think that should come out in December. I grew up with this catalog. I am interested in seeing what will be offered in the way of tomatoes this year.
Burpee's "New for 2013" list  includes:
~ ~ ~ The first sweet corn that can be grown in a container!
~ ~ ~ Michigan State Collection Kiwi. These can take the cold up to Zone 5! A good source of potassium.
~ ~ ~ The world's largest sauce tomato. Two pound tomatoes! The description says that one tomato fills an entire sauce jar! Tomato gravy is mentioned...I have never had this and should look for recipes.
~ ~ ~ Sun King Broccoli. Particularly heat tolerant.
~ ~ ~ A particularly heat-resistant spinach. 250 seeds for $5.95

Good morning Blue. I've been exploring Pinterest and gardening ideas. I've discovered a method for using apple seeds to start my own tree and tomatoe seeds to start my own tomatoes. There are so many ways to recycle veggie remains into new plants. This is going to be my fun exploration this coming year.


I have never had much luck with trying to save tomato seeds but I have been learning more about cleaning them. At Thanksgiving I am hoping to recycle romaine hearts and celery into new plants. :-) Have fun with this and I hope that it eventually gets you a lot more produce. It is so much more expensive to obtain the fresh food in today's economy.
