Amy -

I am so jealous. We are having a blizzard today - AGAIN!

The kids and I have started some herb seeds, lettuce and spinach indoors, but as cold as it has been and with our 3rd snowstorm in 2 weeks we have them in the house - it is not even warm enough in my green house. lol!

Hi Deborah,


Thank you for your terrific tip about the rabbit poo. I wish I knew someone that had rabbits! :o(


I'm going to go out and check those tomatoes today and I'll give an update of their progress.

Not sure if this would work, but if there is a pet store near you, maybe find out if there is a way to get it from them?


Not sure if the other small pets stuff would be mixed in or not.
