Hey all!

Not much to report with the garden sleeping under snow right now.

Oh yawn!

We’ve been alternating between snow and rain…

 but not a lot of snow is melting!

 Something caught my eye this morning…

 up high on the corner of the fence.

 The 2 year-old bluebird nest laced with snow…

 usually hidden in hop vines.

Pretty!

My 17 day-old seedlings {yes they’ve been transplanted already!} are thriving…

happy under 16 hours/day of grow lights.

Yep I know…fake sun.

Whatever it takes.

The herbs are taking way longer to grow tho.

And I noticed that some of the new leaves are yellowing but the veins are staying green.

Had to look it up…seems I need to feed them nitrogen and/or manganese.

Translation: blood meal and/or kelp.

I’ll do both.

In the meantime they’re warm and a cozy inside while this is outside.

Y’all stay warm too!
