Tomorrow is also Super Bowl Sunday. It will be exciting since the Packers are playing. My niece is having a party and has shared a recipe she is making on her blog here.
I am babysitting tonight while Kristin & Tim are out to eat with friends. Jaelyn is in bed, so I decided to place my order with Johnny's Selected Seeds. For a couple years, I have wanted to use floating row covers for the garden, but it hasn't been practical to do so considering we have been traveling back & forth between the farm in Wisconsin & our Illinois home. Since I will be at the farm this spring on a steadier basis, I will be able to tend to the garden and try new things. Here is what I ordered...
Agribon+ AG-19 Floating Row Cover - 83" x 50'
Anchoring Pins Fabric Staples
Agribon+ AG-15 Insect Barrier - 118" x 50'
Pea, Lentil, and Vetch Inoculant (OG)
I anticipate a busy spring at the farm and am excited to dig into the many projects waiting to get started. There are so many things we have wanted to do but just haven't had the time. Rain barrels are on the list. We bought the barrels a couple years ago but haven't used them yet. I take that back. Two of them have scrap wood stored in them & one has gardening tools in it :-). I looked at a site tonight called Aqua Barrels and found this http://www.aquabarrel.com/learn_how_to_paint_barrel.php. For those of you that are looking for a way to camouflage your water barrel, this is a technique that uses tree branches & plants as templates for spray painting.
Enough for now...gotta get a good night's sleep for the drive tomorrow. Go Packers!
