The first snow fell overnight. It was about an inch, and has already mostly melted, but with the days getting so short and daylight savings time making me feel like bedtime should be 6:00, the winter blues have arrived for me in full force. I just chopped my last green pepper from the garden for tonight's supper, and I'm really going to miss our fresh veggies.
Girl #1 and I are going to attempt a windowsill herb garden for snipping so we can still pretend it's the growing season. We planted basil, cilantro and parsley, and I just hope there's enough sunlight to grow in my kitchen window so they'll be handy to use. Maybe the fluorescent light over the sink will help a teeny bit since it's left on all night, dim as it is. Crossing my fingers!
I found the little terra cotta pots for a quarter a piece I think at a flea market, and the tray under them at goodwill for $1.49. I still had some leftover seed and potting soil, so we've got nothing to lose.
