Very little gardening, while I work on this....

I have spent every available moment purging my house of 'stuff'. Please note the picture. That is not actually a before picture, rather a during picture. So far I have taken about ten boxes out for thrift shops and a bit of stuff from my store that never made it out of the bags. I had to stop today because my Pathfinder is full.

On the gardening front, I've been harvesting lettuce and have had a few lovely salads. I've missed them. Things are coming up all over the garden, that probably shouldn't be yet. I'm seeing tiny little leaves on most bushes and trees. My West Coast seed order has been shipped so I'll get it this week, which will let me get the peppers seeded next weekend. I saw neighbour Judy out today. It was the first time we've stumbled on each other in about a month. It felt like spring.

I baked my one Peanut Pumpkin today because I need purée to make my flax muffins. It was a lot easier than I thought it would be. I am like a pioneer woman. Pioneer Woman. I like that!!!

You need a truck, Erin!

Dear Erin, Getting rid of stuff -- very commendable -- makes me feel guilty. Sounds like you have spring fever too. I can't wait. P. x

Why didn't you save your "stuff" for a spring garage sale. You would have had SPLURGE money for seeds.

I love it Mark. And when I'm done I could haul manure with it!!

I totally have spring fever. I'm a real pack rat and this was right out of control. It has been so therapeutic and fun...and sometimes sad. But all good.

I just took another big box to thrift shop today. I am taking some back to the store to sell, and the odd thing will go on used Victoria, but I know myself And I would just procrastinate and it would up right back where it was. Such is the mentality of a pack rat. :-)
