I’m hoping to return to work next week (Tuesday will be 6 weeks), I likely won’t be able to do my normal lifting, but I should be good otherwise.
We moved the automated cat feeder, again, and this time start feeding Trouble her canned food out of it. This has significantly reduced Shadow’s interest in it, and has gotten her comfortable eating out of it again. We’ll go like this for at least a month, and then look at switching back to kibble in it.
We had a huge February thaw this past weekend. Temps in the 60’s, and it was 72 outside this morning! Course, as I type this a front is sweeping through and temps are crashing hard. Most of the snow melted, resulting in flood warnings everywhere. We took advantage of it to set up my new greenhouse:
Husband did all the heavy lifting for me. But now that it’s setup I can get my christmas lights strung in it and start monitoring temps. I’m a little concerned about the bigger/taller space being harder to keep warm enough. I guess we’ll see. Average last frost isn’t till mid-May, so no matter how tempting it is I really don’t dare plant out before then.
Pepper seedlings are coming along nicely:
I’ve re-seeded the ones that didn’t sprout, and rearranged so that the plants that were along the edges are now in the middle. The soda cans are part of an online contest for a Facebook group I’m in. To see who can grow the best pepper plant in a can. It sounded like fun, and I had the seeds, so might as well!
Update: 4 strings of C9 christmas lights are holding it 30+ degrees over air temps. I’ll take it.
