The balmy weather that we had a month ago in the Northwoods has transitioned back into more seasonal temperatures (sans the snow… thank goodness!).  But while it was still sunny and in the 60s, I was finally able to get the seeds started for my garden.

I was so happy when I got these little envelopes!  If my green thumb prevails, we will save some money this year not having to buy transplants.

We also pinched some pennies by reusing Calie’s cat food tins.  The real fun part was getting to use the drill press to poke drain holes in the bottoms.

And they are all nestled safely in the new greenhouse.  But since the nights are still on the chilly side hovering around the freezing mark, we put a space heater inside to keep the poor darlings from getting too cold.

It’s only been a week since the planting, so no sign of life yet, buy I’m keeping my fingers crossed that by this time next week I’ll see something green sprouting out of the dirt.

I just hope it isn’t moss.
