Can you believe it? It's time for me to start planning on where the heck I'm going to start my seedlings. Paul put up a grow light under the counter top in the kitchen a few years ago, but I really need more room. But I have no idea where I'm going to put the new lights and shelves. The basement is much too cold as we don't have a wood stove down there and just about anyplace upstairs (other than the kitchen counter) is a cat / dog / toddler accident just waiting to happen. Maybe in the bedroom and tell Paul he'll have to wear one of those sleeping masks at night?
Wow, seems like the winter is just flying by! Time to start sorting out those seed, planning your garden beds and dreaming about that first homegrown, juicy tomato!
