The fruit trees all seem happy, and I have tons of flowers blooming throughout the property. It really seems like spring now.
Inside the house, even the cat (Cloud Bai-Yun, who shares the house with us and his sister/lover Ginger Root Six Nipples), was gardening his little patch of oat grass this morning. Cherry and regular tomatoes are sharing my master bath with fish peppers. I've potted on the tomatoes so they are taking up a lot of space, but the peppers are still in their peat pots, growing slow as dirt. The room has a lot of glass, which is odd for a bathroom, but it makes for a nice little greenhouse, especially with a space heater cranked up a couple of hours a day. And yes, I have other bathrooms, so I'll still be showering over the next couple of months as the seedlings grow. In case anyone was concerned. In a cooler spot I have some broccoli and napa cabbage humming along, and I'm growing cilantro inside this year, hoping for better results than I've had with it outdoors. So far, so good.
We still have some cleanup from a nasty windstorm that came through earlier this week, but generally I feel like things are in pretty good shape and that all is well here in Zhutopia.
Happy weekend to all.
