Spring planting...

I love spring..seriously. Today I started some of my planting and am hoping for some good rewards come this summer. I am trying to start a couple of plants from seed...both jalapeno and tomatillo. The little box below is my seed starter box. I went to Ace Hardware this morning and they wanted $7 for this thin plastic seed starter thing. Pfft...so I took one of the dollar store shoe boxes and turned it upside down. In the lid (which is now the bottom) I put in soil and the seeds. Then I watered it and put the bottom (now the top) on top. It holds in the moisture and lets in the sun. I'm hoping it works!

Mmmm...my favorite herbs....cilantro and basil....

Here's the row of plant pots behind my house. In addition to the herbs I have planted two types of heirloom tomatoes. I still need to get cherry tomato plants but they didn't have them this morning.

Ah...my little Honor girl keeping watch over the neighborhood...


I love this picture of her. She sat down for a moment next to me and I was able to snap this one of her.

Now I think I'll go outside and just sit and read. I'm trying to finish Harry Potter book 4. I really have a ton of other books I want to read lately so I need to get through the HP ones.
