Seed Progress 20230527

Forgot to post this! My apologies.

Old window lying on some scrap lumber to act as a cheap and dirty cold frame for gardening. The window is half open, and that half is screened. Planting plugs can be seen behind the screen.
Kludgey, but works!

I took the small sized cold frame out of the garage so I could move the plugs into it. I also hauled out some rain barrel water from our stash in the cellar, and made sure nothing was “resting” in the watering can that was closest to the door.

FWIW, we have no dog.

Our house came with a doghouse, but we have no dog.

We both like them, but cats have been better for us with our multiple moves over the years.  Now, with funds tight, it wouldn’t be nice to bring in any animal that would only add to our expenses.

Last year I planned to somehow convert said doghouse, but never made up my mind as to what.

We still have no dog, but the doghouse remains.
