Another Day down
Yep, it's snowing here, again. I think that groundhog lied!
Lucky goat is growing like mad and he's getting into plenty of trouble including a short period of him marking his territory. Yay rah on that one. For some reason he just got it in his head he needed to pee on everything. The last day has been pretty good tho, he's not "marked" anything, anywhere he's not supposed to. if it wasn't 15F out, he would have found himself marking to his hearts content out in the barn!
Elvis the cat got jealous and wanted her picture taken too. But, when I snapped it, she played coy and looked away on me.
I couldn't take it, I had to start some seeds. Just the promise of them growing is all it took. The seeds are ones I got off of ebay from a questionable seller. Why did I buy them then? Simply because they are unusual seeds and they might grow. Plus, they were cheap, really cheap. I started some grapes and some tangerine seeds with the old paper towel and ziploc method. If they're going to not want to sprout, they'll have a tough time avoiding it with this method. Even old seeds sprout in the ziploc bag. I will try to have a little patience in starting my food crop seeds tho. This time of year is really difficult for me as I can't wait to start a whole new season of growing things. It's just one thing I do really well and enjoy so much. It's something I am kind of selfish about. Starting warm weather plants now will just make them spindly for transplanting time.
Hmmm, I was going to rant about a few things I'd read on the news but now that I've written about gardening, thought about gardening while writing, I can't remember what it was that had me so mad. Go figure, I self medicated with garden seeds! LOL Might be a good thing....
