So I stayed inside and quilted and now all the snow has melted, it’s bright and sunny and 60º. All the plants that we covered are doing fine and the ones that weren’t covered look even better. So let that be a lesson to me. If they are strong enough to come up early, they are strong enough to withstand two nights of snow and freezing temperatures.

  2. I agree with COndra. It's in your nature to nurture anyway.

  9. Re: the eggshell garden, we are having an 8-year old girl demonstrate how to do this in one of our Recycled workshops... great fun! I wonder if it would work to pre-soak the soil in a bucket first, then put it in the eggshells... can't wait to see how your seeds do!
    BTW, I think the book collaboration sounds great!

    My DD does the egg starters too...she must have inherited all the green thumb, mine are black....
    I have been known to kill even the hardiest plants....
    I hope the snow melts soon and you can get back to the spring....
