Becoming an Urban Homesteader Series # 6 : This week's Happenings

It's still too early to do anything in our gardens in Ontario as the ground is still frozen and there is still some snow/ice in the shaded areas.   Winter isn't over yet !

However, the garlic is trying hard to poke through the ground outside, along with chives, parsley and oregano.
Indoor sprouts are growing high - they are on their 2nd cutting, and the celery experiment is working well so far.

Planted seeds - Tomatoes (various kinds, saved from last year's tomatoes, cherry, beefsteak, persimmons and a different variegated variety saved from my CSA summer program last year), Herbs (Rosemary & Basil), poppy (saved from last year's plants), carnation and marigolds (saved from last year's plants).   I re-cycled yogurt containers for seed pots, which I also used last year and fit perfectly into a $1.75 garden tray from Canadian Tire.

Saturday evening there was a beautiful sky .... so was anticipating a beautiful Sunday, which turned out to be a  glorious day weather wise - good hiking - did 8 km hike with my hiking group.
