Onwards & Outwards

I got around to getting some more WS containers out, so my total is now at 36.
The poor milk jugs are under 6 inches of snow.
Not cool that I look out and can't even see them, but I know they're under there waiting patiently for spring.

D is going to build me a nice plant stand this year with these Plant Stand Instructions.
Of course, he's going to overdrive the lights for it. I think it's a 'more power' man thing. But, I'm not complaining - the more light the better!

Now I just have to save up enough pennies to get it done before March so I can get my inside stuff started on time. Kim sent me some really yummy sounding veg seeds that I'm dying to try. I suppose I could WS them and be done with it, but I want to see something growing. That's the only problem with WSing - it's pretty much fuss-free and hands off. Not good for wanting to get my hands dirty and baby some seedlings!

I'm at 20 containers, but I still have a crapload more to do. We just bought another bag of soil over the weekend. I'm guessing I'll probably end up with over 50 containers. I need to stay out of the GW seed exchange....

Colleen,
you go girl! Fun, ain't it?
I can't wait to see your results. More soil? Ha, I bet you're going to end up with much more than 50. Husband think you're nuts yet? lol.
:)

Absolutely! Between buying soil every time we go out and telling him that "no, we need to buy this instead of that because I need the container" he is quite sure I've finally gone over the edge. He's a good sport, though. We went to Sam's Club last week and he was over by the bakery section and spied some cookies in a nice, clear plastic container. He said, "hey Colleen---this is the kind of container you want, right?" Granted, he and the girls are "Cookie Monsters" but it was sweet all the same :-)

And, you might be right. I'm looking at my seed box now, which is totally full, and I still have seeds coming from three more people that I exchanged with. 50 might have been a low estimate. Yippee :-)

Have a great day!
