    not sure what i am doing wrong but i guess i have to add content this way.

    my tradition is to soak my seeds overnight in chamomile tea, then plant on Christmas day.

    nothing religious, just found if i soak my seeds overnight and in the morning after the wife and kids are done rifling through their gifts, i had quite time to plant my seeds...... it is a tradition that has worked for me in a Zone 3a..... but now i am in a zone 6a and just about anything i toss into the grou...
    seeds are soaking in mild chamomile tea overnight, i alway sow seeds on Christmas day.

    thank you Gloria and Merry Christmas to you. i can't clone, tried many times, does't work for me. having a final nip of heated brandy, snow is lightly falling, the moon is full and directly overhead filling the area with moonlight. off to bed now...well maybe after the next info-mercial.
    ya, snow today, put a heater in the greenhouse, covered the tomatoes. this is crazy!

    I've considered myself crazy for moving to the great white north as far as I have. But people who live even further north? Truly CRAY-CRAY!!!! LOL

    On one of those off the grid TV shows there was a guy much further north who heats a greenhouse with a wood boiler. Now that is dedication.
    okay, so the upstairs bathroom is for the wife and teenage daughters, downstairs belong to DAD! you can tell because all the books and magazines, so why can i not dump until almost noon and why does my washroom smell like hairspray and not "Old Spice" anymore... i am really starting to not like teenagers!

    You need to eat really spicy food and start "marking your territory"!

    LOL@dash!
    The good news is that this stage will come to an end. You'll eventually miss having them around all the time, but you will NEVER miss the washroom "joys."

    Meh Geeme. That's a mom's perspective. Not sure there are too many Dads that miss having them around all the time.

    Love my kids, but ready to see them off on their own too.
    can't take the cold anymore, walls are frozen, cars won't start... just booked honolulu for a week...actually the wife is running in the april marathon, doesn't matter, i need heat and not pepper heat!
    better get this out before the flood of wishes, Merry Christmas everyone!

    MCTY Mark! I hope you and your fam are having a great one!
    okay, new universal law needed, if there is no more room in your yard for snow, mother nature has to stop dropping!

    thank you for thinking i wasn't being a pig or rude, just thought i would play along, with the pirate theme. actually just watched the full pirates of the caribbean series, it only took a several months. i drop my girls off at karate then head to the local public library just down the street, so i bring a computer and watch a movie until they are done.

    guess me being a replacement for jimmy dipp isn't happening for the new Pirates of the Caribbean. yes, i am playing on the...
    geeme

    Sounds like a good way to kill time while the girls are in karate. I'm a fan of the Pirates movies - hope you enjoyed them as much as I do!

    Glad I waited - woke up to find everything covered in frost this morning. But after it warms up, ditto - the girls are going OUTSIDE!

    i know it sounds goofy but when it comes to sweetness in the organic world, they go by a thing called the brix scale, kind of like the scoville but not for heat. i am still waiting for more sap, i did get a 1litre and few weeks ago, so let's see what happens when i start the boil process..... i am pumped - never done this before. kind of like the first time i fixed the shower and found out what a "seat" was, or the time i replaced the bearings on the furnace blower and had to saw...

    get a little break today but just enough to warm the shovel. love the sound of snow sizzling on the bbq - hickory smoked pork chops last night.
    why won't it quite snowing, there is no reason for temps to be below 0----my bones are aching! my plants are complaining!
