I cleared out a closet upstairs for seed starting, but still haven’t decided what to start. I swear every year, as the last weakling seedling bites the dust, that I will never again waste the lives of dozens of innocent seeds.
Nevertheless, each January I look for a garden-fix to get me through the cold. This year’s polar vortex and snow days has tested my resolve mightily and I came up with handy-dandy solution the other day: plant a terrarium..! Over at Pinterest, you can bet that I got plenty of great ideas and I’m especially liking the idea of a Fairy Garden.
Last week I shopped the craft stores and came up with a wonderful Wardian case marked half-off. Astounding, isn’t it, how much you’re willing to pay for something when they tell you it’s half-off? I went to Zeidler for the plants and got everything put in and watered down on Friday.
(But I might possibly maybe start some lettuce and spinach…and thyme and basil…and marigolds…perhaps…since I’ve already cleaned out that closet)
