So I'm a little obsessed with the new gardening thing... I check on my little seedlings just about every half-hour when I'm home. and weirdly enough, they rarely disappoint! The cosmos started coming up the second day (and are now hittin the top of the little greenhouse), the Texas Hummingbird Sage and the tomatillos started coming up the third, and yesterday a giant Edamame seedling reared it's beautiful head. And this morning, when I thought all hope was lost for the sunflowers (I know I could direct-seed them, but what the hell) a sprout was peeking through! This is so ridiculously exciting... haha
I ALSO found this morning a LOCAL urban chickens forum! This guy was profiled in the paper this morning, and he lives right near me and keeps black aulstrops (sp?) and americunas! And I think a bunch of others. Anyway, he started a messageboard to help other urban chicken-ers, and I'm once again SOOO EXCITED!
It's all coming together....
