    Hello Red Hill Hollow, Sorry I haven't logged in until now to say Hi and see how you're doing. I cannot believe how everything's growing in your front yard. Looks really nice. It was just a giant empty area. You've done such a nice job. What all you got up front now? I hope you're doing well these days! I'm pretty much done planting everything this spring. We'll see how it all goes.

    Hello! Thanks for stopping by and leaving a post on my page! Don't know why I didn't see it sooner. As far as emergency seeds.. it is worst case scenario. I'd rather be prepared than not. I'm not into the zombie thing either, lol.... but there are too many scary things going on the the world. A couple well place nukes could knock out North America's power grid and send us into chaos. I'm in a heavy earthquake zone that could leave us helpless for quite a while if a big one hit. There are many scenarios that could play out.... hopefully not. Actually, "prepping" is a fun hobby. It keeps me thinking anyway! Hope all is well with you! Gave you a vote since I was here!

    That's awesome! I've been working in my kitchen herb garden this year. I've really been enjoying the fresh herb scents that are starting to fill my kitchen.

    This week we ate from the basement twice. The first time, I harvested all the pea shoots, breaking them off just above the lowest leaves, as instructed. They were yummy and the plants are growing back. I planted more peas and I think I'll do a whole flat with a combination of peas and lettuce. Mid week I harvested lettuce and kale (there's lots left) and we had a lovely salad. The carrots have sprouted and I'm thinning them out as they come up. It will be really interesting to see what comes of them.

    Everything looks great. Keep us posted on your basement garden. :)
