Not egg cartons, but egg shells. Spring planting will be here before we know it (the days are already getting longer again, hooray) and I came across the most interesting idea for planting seedlings. I have planted seedlings in egg cartons, then "planted" the carton with seedling, but it never occurred to me to actually plant in empty eggshells. To give credit where due, I stole this idea and picture from this blog:
Though Spring is more than a month away the warmer weather we've had and the garden posts that have been popping up in the last week have me thinking it was a good time to post about
screened in/sun porches. Funny that before I get all the photos loaded it starts to snow! It's 41 degrees here, but it's snowing like crazy. Wasn't in the forecast either.
You may have noticed that my dear hubby has a finger bandaged in a couple of the pictures. Just a reminder to never ever stretch your arms to either side of you to hold wood in place while you're using a framing nailer. Or any nailer for that matter. The thing double shot and a humongous nail went straight through his finger, bone and all. Major ouch and a trip to an Omaha hospital emergency room. The nurse and female doctor had to call in a male doctor to remove it. Hubby watched. I didn't, but did take a photo of it with my cell phone without managing to look at it. Don't worry, I didn't post that picture.
It is so fun to look back on the year to see what has been accomplished around here. In between the smaller projects and crafts, there has been a few bigger projects that have been so fun to cross off our to do list.
