AeroGarden Update

Finally, a photo:

Now that the parsley has sprouted, it seems to be making up for lost time. It started as one tiny green shoot, and now it has several friends.

Over to the right, you can see the box for the Topsy Turvy. I'm looking forward to getting that started, but the weather has been so unpredictable recently that it still might freeze. We should be in the clear in a few more weeks. I have a daylily blooming in the front yard today, and a few hibiscus buds are visible. My poor plants are so confused!

I hate colds

I am way too busy to have a cold. I stayed home from work today to see if I can power-rest through it. Looks like it was a pretty day out -- clear, sunny, and 70 degrees. I spent it indoors sleeping and watching YouTube. This was my favorite thing that I watched today: a seven-year-old who has just had dental surgery and is still high from the drugs.

It took me years to figure out why I always had pleasant associations with the dentist. The goofiness and sleepiness never bothered me. It was just nice.

Bleh, not feeling great

Hey, it's Groundhog Day!

I think I'm finally getting this cold everyone's had. I started getting a sore throat and extra tiredness Friday night, and hoped that a weekend of vitamins and sleep would fix it, but I'm not sure it worked. Maybe it helped make it less severe at least.

I put the camera batteries on the charger, so I should be able to put up a photo of the AeroGarden soon. All the pods finally have sprouted. The parsley took forever; I was starting to think it wouldn't come up at all, but the first little green shoot popped out on Friday. We're two weeks into the cycle, so we should have fresh herbs ready to eat in another two or three weeks.

I didn't watch the Super Bowl, but I did TiVo the Puppy Bowl. I look forward to watching that later this evening over some soup and hot tea.

Crap, I'm coughing now. Why does February always suck?
