Right about this time of year, I am ready to start planting things. Generally the weather tantalizes me with a few nice days and then returns to winter grey and cold. When that happened this year I decided to do something about it.
A quick trip to Home Depot with the little boys while the big children were at yoga class yielded four windowsill sized greenhouses.
I planted the other two greenhouses with lettuce, spinach and kale. The greens were up within a couple of days and the pea seedlings will probably be ready to plant out at the end of this week! Once they’re out I’ll wash down the greenhouses with vinegar, add more peat pellets and start my tomatoes, peppers, eggplant and squashes!
Just thinking about it makes me feel like summer is around the corner!
