Salsa Garden Part II–update

Cold frames are a little behind schedule, but almost done.  Just need to attach the windows to the frames with hinges and add handles.

Seedlings are planted and waiting patiently on my kitchen counter for the completion of the cold frames.  When the cold frames are complete (and our current rainy weather has passed), they will go inside of the cold frames (and off my kitchen counters!) out in our garden where they can get warmed by the sun.

I will be sure to update you again when the seeds are outside (and did I mention, off my kitchen counter?) and in our completed cold frames!

See Salsa Gardening Part I if you’re just joining us now!

Salsa Gardening Part I

Salsa is a favorite in our family, second only to cereal.  As a result, despite all my efforts to the contrary, we are regular patrons of Chili’s because their bottomless chips and salsa appetizer is very cost-effective way to feed a ravenous group of salsa-crazed guys.  In fact, we eat so much of this delicacy that we suggest our Chili’s servers just go ahead and bring out a few refills worth at once to save themselves the hassle of all the trips back to the kitchen–the only server who ever doubted the sincerity of this suggestion regretted her decision later.
