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!
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.
