Sprouts and Things

Now that the days are getting longer, I'm really itching for spring to come.  We've already gone to Lowe's and stocked up on seeds and dirt for our garden.  The good thing about living in the Southeast is that we have a very long growing season, and we usually start planting vegetable sprouts in early March. The bad thing about this region is the soul sucking heat and mosquito population for 8 months of the year.  You win some, you lose some.

Anyway, my little seeds are already in some dirt and will sprout inside so they can be transferred outside in about 10-14 days.

Seriously though, when you get used to eating homegrown tomatoes, the things served in restaurants suddenly feel mealy and are tasteless.

I finally got my husband to go on a long walk with me today.  Here it is about 1:30 p.m. and I've already hit my 10,000 Fitbit steps for the day!

We have the doors and windows open because it's so sunny and beautiful today.  It's 76 right now and we have a high of 77, which is very warm for February.

Ugh.  This is already mosquito breeding weather.


  1. Lucky! I am SOOOOO ready for spring!!!!!!!

  2. yay on the steps :) I need to change battery of my fitbit and maybe we can all be fitbit friends :)

  3. I cleaned up my garden beds last weekend, but planting is is at least a month away for cold crops. I am so ready. Nothing like a sun-warmed garden tomato...nothing.
