I feel like God.
Last Sunday, I turned over my compost pile after my first full year, ending with a few dormant, snowy months. I was delighted to find enough rich black humus to fill a wheelbarrow. I made dirt!

I filled several pots and jars, whatever I could find around the house, and planted some seeds: cabbage, peas, carrots, peppers, tomatoes. I had plenty of humus leftover and need more little planters for more tomatoes. I think I'll try corn this year too. I even swiped Anne's good idea and planted some seeds in eggshells for easy transplanting later. Thanks for giving me the seeds earlier Anne!

I could have sworn I had a small pitchfork. That would have made the turning over of the pile so much easier. Mental note: next angry mob I'm a torch.

Good for you! I'm not nearly as ambitious as that - but if you have any extra plants left over, I'd be glad to take them off your hands :)

btw did you get my phone message yesterday? I left it on your home phone.

you're welcome.

It's time to plant those peas directly outside, by the way.

I guess it's time for me to do the same since I ordered seeds for myself at the same time as I ordered yours.

Yes, JM, you can have some of mine if they survive. Are you guys around for spring break?
