Spring is here!
At least that’s what I thought. Turns out I was wrong. The beautiful start to the week—a sunny 70 degrees—didn’t stick and here we are ending the week in the 30s with on and off freezing rain.
There are some signs of life in the garden though, so hopefully spring will be here to stay soon.
This week, my self-reliance project was to get some seeds started. Last week, I shared Are We Crazy or What’s How to Start Seeds Indoors for Next to Nothing—Without Flimsy Plastic Containers. I fell in love with the cool newspaper pot maker Jennifer has, so naturally, I had to order one. Unfortunately, I’d already bought the flimsy plastic containers before I saw the article, so it’s plastic this year and newspaper next year.
This is my first attempt at starting seeds indoors. Keep your fingers crossed it all goes well.
A special thanks to Jennifer of Are We Crazy or What? for her patience and understanding as I bombarded her with all my newbie questions.
Here are the news and tips from around the web that got my attention this week:
