Shrub, Snow, Cat House

Winter is definitely here!  We are drinking healthy beverages to keep up our constitution.  We have the cats all hooked up with their own lair.  Ray has so much love to give!

Baby Chickens, Christmas Crafts, and a Confession

It’s hard to explain this video… It’s me, for sure!  You’ll see our new baby Ayam Cemani chicks, some things I’ve made for Christmas, and I confess about a problem I’ve had for a little over two years and show some progress!

Painting My Grow Room “Door”

I have started gardening my 1800 square foot basement.  This is easier said than done.  Over the summer, when we were still financially flush, I ordered some LED grow lights and Happy Frog potting soil and a bunch of seeds, planning to plant them in the Spring.

Well, I couldn’t wait, and now there’s stuff growing in my basement.  Strawberries, Mint, Calendula, Marigolds, Begonias, and now I’ve planted spinach, carrots and peppers and am awaiting their germination 🙂

I hung a canvas cloth 2/3 of the way into the basement (which has been likened by a friend to a bowling alley!) to help retain heat on that end, since it contains a huge old radiator, which is heated by our outdoor wood furnace.
