Updates on Winter Projects

Adventures of Old Nebraska DaveThe winter here in Nebraska rages on. Another six inches of snow fell over the weekend, making driving challenging. Snow blowers bellowed throughout the neighborhood as snow was being thrown high in the air. Temperatures hover in the teens and single digits at night. As for me, I still like using a shovel. So as the sound of roaring snow blowers echo through the neighborhood, my fuel efficient shovel quietly goes about business. It might take a little longer but it keeps a body warm and healthy to use the shovel, don't you think? So as the day comes to an end, all driveways are clear in hopes that spring is quite near. Unfortunately, the forecasters are predicting more snow accumulation of several more inches in a couple days.

New Seed Starting Station

The new seed starting station has been completed.

This seed starting area resides deep in the bowels of my basement right next to the cold storage room that I built some years ago. There are actually three shelves that will need lighting, but for now only one shelf will be used, which will be more than enough for this year. Just this one shelf has the potential to start 588 seeds. It's not pretty, but it is functional.

Function wins out over 'pretty' every day in my book! How cool is your basement? Will you need to add heat to the trays? I wish I had room to have a setup like yours. Charlotte San Antonio
