I took a mental health day from work today ;). And I just wasted my day..well not really, planted my new winter indoor garden sprouts, made bread, got local meat....a busy fun day. So yeah any of you in a planting spree!? I'm not really, not yet. But I wanted to give another try to growing cuccumbers indoors. Last Fall I had stoped because of a gnat infestation. Now they are all gone (by leting my plant's dirt dry up). So that was my day, if you want to see the video here it is ;)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9IVLPwUUmBY
So I hope you are all anxious for this gardening season!

When I came home from work I got a note saying I had a package at the post office. My seeds had finally arrived!!! I filmed myself unpacking them (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eL90J1CKYKQ). It's the first time I order seeds (and so much!) Now I'll be ready to plant my tomatoes and peppers at the end of February!!!

I wasn't gonna..but I did. I've placed a store bought sweet potato in some water to make it root and sprout. Now I still have at least 3 months before Spring is totally here, so I hope it will have enough time to sprout. I still have no idea where I will plant the sprouts...but I suppose I'll have time to dig a hole for it. Besides than....nothing much happening here. I am going to shovel snow in a little while because after a month there's been a snowfall! I'm still making videos of my plans for 2010 on Youtube. Mostly because I need to wait 'till the end of Februrary before planting anything. ;)
Here's a video about reusing stuff when sowing your seeds
Me ordering my seeds....
My hand built solar lamp

I just want to take a few minutes to wish you an awsome year 2010!
And maybe to encourage you all to add some green resolutions this year.
Here are a few of mine and of course if you have some more, please share!
First the 3 Rs, recycle, reuse and reduce! Second buy local as much as you can. This will of course take less energy to transport products and encourage you local economy. Because even if all the "major" countries are thinking of China to salvage their economies.....we all know the best way it to buy "home made" products. I know I will and even if I live in a "minor" province of Canada...this is very doable. One last resolution idea...plant something! ;)
