Garden 2009: The Beginning...

Since my seeds came in back in January, I've been eagerly awaiting time to start them. Unfortunately, I haven't been so eager to actually start them early! I saw a very interesting way of starting seeds, in eggshells, on a website, so I thought I'd try it!

First, you start with the crates and the shells:
Next, you get out your seeds. Today I'm doing all of my tomato seeds, squash, artichoke, and red bell peppers.

Then you put in the soil and seeds in the shells, labeling on the flap what you've put in it.

That's all there is to it. Here is a detailed list of what I started today:
Tomatoes: Austin's Red Pear, Beam's Yellow Pear, Cherokee Purple (a repeat from last year!), Green Zebra (another repeat), Italian Heirloom, Martino's Roma, Green Tomatillo
Others: Green Globe Artichoke, Bull Nose Bell Pepper, Summer Crookneck Squash
More to start this week!

Heather Hogan, Iron Chef...

One of my very best friends, Heather Hogan, is a chef at Lili's Bistro on Magnolia, right here in Fort Worth. Last night she was featured on a cooking segment on the local NBC affiliate. Have a look at the segment!

Blogging when there is nothing to blog about.

My last post must have really expressed how I have nothing going on right now, especially since it has been almost a month since I last posted! Wow. That is just sad. I've been extremely busy in the library and my grad school classes have started back up, so I'm not really doing much but library and library school. I'm also cleaning. I no longer have a drip in my tub, so I no longer have to save all of my water for the toliet. What, did I not talk about that? Hmmm. I guess I may not have posted my pictures. Maybe someday.

I'll be back again soon to say something important. Maybe...
