Seeds and Weeds

This past weekend we finally got around to tending to the garden. Last weekend I had started a bunch of seeds, ones we had from last year (and perhaps the year before, and also I had a little seed trade at work so I got some interesting things from a coworker).  It’s so warm it may as well be May so I figured we could start seeds outside in our greenhouse. We started lots of seeds from 2006 so I don’t know how successful they will be, but already in a week we’ve had spinach, beets, kale, okra,chard and lettuce babies pop up!

Weekend Adventures

This weekend we went to the Chesapeake Watershed Forum. We got to go to great educational workshops all weekend, and had great weather most of the time. One of the best parts was going in town one night where this group gets together and plays music every Thursday. They were really, really good. Dan was wishing he brought his bass.
