There’s a TON of snow on the ground in Paradise, but I’m getting geared up for gardening already. A couple of weeks ago, I finally unpacked my order of goodies from Lee Valley Tools (that place is dangerous for a guy like me – way too many neat tools…), and started planning for my seed starting. We’re still a long way from Last Frost here, but I want to be prepared for the coming season.

This most recent weekend, I managed to get my seed stash in order – removed items in my online list that had been used up, added some new ones, and sorted out my storage. I also got all my plantings cleaned up on Folia. Go me!

No luck on the shelves yet, but I’m still very hopeful. My father-in-law mentioned a place I should be able to get the fixtures I need for a reasonable price, which is excellent.
