    Tell me about it? We got up to about an inch of snow this morning. Your seedlings are looking great! :)

    Nice! Probably other plants can be done this way, selectively.

    Yep... Just my luck. Tomato seedlings will be ready to be transplanted in a few weeks but I highly doubt weather will permit it :( they are growing well.

    Pepper seedlings are always slow growing but they are doing well also.

    Growing but I should have held off a couple of weeks before sowing. It's so hard to guess what the weather will do though.

    Ya'll please pray - my weather forcast is right. The ground should be dry enough by Friday to till my spring/fall garden. I've been itching to get in the garden for months.

    What a Awesome day God has provided today. I finally will get to spread manure & till my spring / fall garden to get ready for seed sowing.

    My wife and I call a day like today "Free days" where we open up all the windows, left the wind whistle through the house. No need for heat or air conditioning so it a free day :)
