42° at 3 AM this morning.
I ordered my onion plants from Dixondale Farms, 3 bunches of Candy and 2 of Super Star. Intermediate varieties work so much better for us in our area.
I will try to plant more varieties of lettuce later this afternoon after we get back from the in-laws. Well that didn't happen, we were late and I wasn't up to more work.
I did spend a couple of hours this morning sorting seed and filing the packs by when to plant and how to plant.
I also labeled each seed packet with the expiration date for viability. Now when they are expired, I will pitch them. I found several I knew were way too old so they went into the trash too.
The only thing I need to buy is sweet corn seed and popcorn seed.
We went in to the In-laws for lunch. She fixed a hamburger pie. It was a recipe I had given her way back in the '60's. I think it was from Home Ec Class. The base is hamburger, onions, cream of tomato soup, seasonings, green beans or any veggie you like. The top is mashed potatoes with an egg beaten in. All is then baked. I will be looking up my recipe and making it again for us.
I made a stop and picked up some Lime Away for the shower doors and stopped by the garden store and was shocked to see it closed....no sign on the door; nothing at all. When I got home I called their number and they have moved. We drove very close by it on our way to the closed store! I want to pick up a bale of professional seed starting mix. It should last me at least two years.
Watered the chickens and gathered 6 more eggs. I think I will give them some freedom tomorrow. Part of the chicken yard has melted.

I hope I haven't posted this before; I was too tired to check.
