The weather is warm right now but I am resisting doing too much outside. It's only March and I've seen snow in April. This next Sunday, however, I'll be going to a friend's house and we are going to make pots to start seeds in. We'll be making them from newspaper using a handy little gadget we acquired from Lehman's catalog. It looks something like a mortar and pestle. I have a place on my back porch where I can set up a table on which to place the little pots so they will get sun. I'm holding off on the seed starting, though, until next month. I'm going to try to grow some corn, beans, squash, tomatoes and various herbs. All the seeds are heirloom, so no GMO. Next year I'll be experimenting with straw bale gardening. Do you garden?
