I have placed some eBay seed orders, but I have plenty to start with already. I'm hoping to take photos as I go and update my Winter Sowing Guide. I'll still need to take spring and transplant photos, but it'll be good to get the ball rolling on that project.
Tomorrow is yet another doctor appointment. This one to discuss surgery. The doctors can't say with certainly that this surgery will solve the problem. It could help, it might not. Is it worth the financial strain, the possibility of complications, and the 6-week down time for recovery? That's something I will have to discuss with Tony and the doctor. I'm leaning toward the surgery. The chance at being able to function normally again is tempting, and honestly, we're already going to be paying for my medical bills for a long time. I'm hoping for a house, but with all this medical hooplah, I'm not entirely certain it's going to happen anymore. Here's hoping for the best, either way.
My plan is to get my first winter sowing containers out this week. The ones that need cold stratification need to be started sooner than those that only need warm conditions to germinate. In will go my plum, apple, pear, and hops seeds, or at least those are at the top of my list currently. I ordered some cherry seeds too that I'm hoping to get planted right away when they arrive.
Tony picked up a new grow light today too, so I can get started with a few indoor plants as well. It's always great to have a couple lettuce plants in the house to make salads over the cold months. And they grow so well with minimal care!
