Baby it's Cold Outside

Well, it wasn't exactly the winter storm they forecast for our area, but it was icy enough to cause several car accidents.  With the snow and ice, you might think it is a bad time to start gardening.  Wrong!  Now i a great time to begin your seedlings indoors.  Elijah and I got our broccoli and tomatoes started 2 days ago and the broccoli is already sprouting.  In just a few weeks it will be ready to plant out in the garden!

Vanilla Extract Update

It has been a month since I started making my vanilla extract.  While it doesn't look much different, still a pale brown, it is smelling more like what you expect it to smell like.  At least one more month to go.  Since I had just bought some at Thanksgiving, I may just test it in a month and let it sit even longer.
