The news is -- the weather's been crap. Cold, damp and dank. I've been amassing packets of seeds -- not to mention two heirloom tomato plants -- with nowhere to go. Until Sunday.
For the next two months.
Sunday dawned bright, dry and sunny. We won't mention the gale-force winds and a wind chill of about 20 below. What better time to throw down some lettuce and carrot seeds, right? Hey. The seed packets said they're cool-weather vegetables. Well, it is definitely cool.
Live long and prosper, my little vegi-friends.
I assembled said seeds: Romaine, arugula and carrots.
I assembled the When Pigs Fly Farm portable tool shed.
And trucked down to WPFF.
Despite losing about a third of my seeds to the hurricane swirling around me, I got romaine, arugula and carrots in the ground. It felt good.
And Monday, it snowed. Welcome to When Pigs Fly Farm.
