After yesterday’s whirlwind workday for us both, neither complained much that today was a day best spent indoors. I wrapped up some writing deadlines yesterday and did my first radio show to promote the book, so keep your ears open and you’ll be able to listen to the show on Saturday February 12th at 10am EST.
Thankfully there was no shortage of things to do inside, including checking in on the seeds that were started on 1/26. As of today the 4 Large Cherry Tomatoes have all sprouted, as have all of the Sweet Basil, 10 plants worth.
I spent a few minutes this evening lusting over a beautiful list of heirloom tomatoes making me more than a bit sad at having lost much of my heirloom seed stock last year. I do have a few remaining seeds from some of my favorites though, so all is not lost. In a perfect world I would have a tomato garden that had any heirloom variety you could imagine. Yes, I’m that obsessed with tomatoes. I’m pretty sure there should be a 12 step program for people like me.
In the next few days we will be picking up my compost tumbler and bringing it home. I’m hoping that it will give the homestead’s freshman composting year a nice boost as there is a batch of goodness inside that has been brewing for a few months. There’s also a few pallets that need to be brought over as well as some other miscellaneous pieces of lumber and my old cedar raised beds from a previous residence.
Pretty sure we’re gonna need some liniment that night…
