Getting my hands dirty

Even though the weather wasn't great today, I had every intention of cleaning up some of the yard but was too tired after my run. But when I heard that we're supposed to get 4-6 inches of snow tomorrow, I got pissed and decided to get my hands dirty anyway.

I battled the forecasted crappy weather by planting more seeds. Today, I planted nasturtiums (a last minute purchase that I'd forgotten to get earlier) and cucumbers. I really enjoyed playing in the dirt, even if it was in a bowl in my kitchen sink.

I think I'm doing well with my seeds.  I'm remembering to water them and turn on their lights every night.

Arugula, cosmos, two types of zinnia, marigold

I think this is winter's last stand. If ten-day forecasts are to believed (I know, they're not, but let a girl dream), it's supposed to be much nicer next weekend, and then we'll skip spring entirely and summer will start.
