well...there is still a ton of snow on the ground but with enough bright days like today - it should soon go away. not too soon in my mind!
today i planted almost 100 tiny seeds - woohoo! this is my little plastic greenhouse which is in the house, in front of our other kitchen door (that we don't use!). you can't really see the contraption that jam built but there are 2 fluorescent lights on each side.
the styrofoam cups and plastic trays have been in use for the past 4 years - reduce, re-use and recycle. we are also going to make some soil blockers in addition to using the cups.
today i planted 8 different kinds of peppers, 9 different kinds of tomatoes and 12 different kinds of brassicas. the brassicas (cabbage, celery, cauliflower, broccoli, brussel sprouts and a bunch of others) will be moved to the outdoor greenhouse in a week and a bit. next week i will direct sew a bunch of herbs, lettuces and spinaches in pots in the greenhouse. i am so happy to finally be planting. hopefully by the end of april, the snow will all be melted and the ground workable so that i can direct sew a bunch of stuff in the ground.
here's some more yummy miso soup with nori, celery and shrimp.
jam has been on a miso soup kick - usually it's me...so we have been having it quite regularly. i just change up the ingredients to keep it interesting.
he's also been going haywire for japchae...and it is so delicious! plus, it makes a great lunch for him to take into work. he's been going in to work several days a week now.
the first crab boat came in yesterday and all of our friends from framboise and fourchu who work on unloading the boats did their orientation yesterday and then put that orientation to work unloading the first boat.
here's a pretty sunset from the other night - i think this is one of my faves!
we had our Easter dinner with our fourchu family last friday afternoon. we go there every easter and every christmas and we always have a wonderful time - they always make us feel like family and feed us well! and they always send us home with a pile of food! we had a really good time and our friend b said "it wouldn't feel like a proper holiday if you guys weren't here. you're family". isn't that a wonderful thing to be told?
and here is a pic of fourchu harbour from last april. i think it is a pretty pic!
well, it's only 2:20pm but jam and i feel that we have put in a good day's work! he washed a bunch of cat plates (10 million to be exact!) and a bunch of pots. i planted all of the seeds. he did some work in the greenhouse and i made sandwiches for lunch. now he is working on his application for LobstersRUs and i am writing this post. soon i'll go start supper - he wants veg stirfy (just plain with EVOO, garlic and ginger) with rice and what he wants he gets!
i finally feel that this year's garden is on it's way. it's been a long winter! i hope you all are enjoying your week!
