Common household remedies request
Actually, this is more a report than a request!
1. I just got one of those mini-greenhouse thingies, with the peat pots and the plastic covers, to start a couple of packets of hot peppers. The directions say, "place seed starting tray in a very warm spot, both night and day," so I put the greenhouse over the wood stove. Is that too hot, do you think?
2. I'm winterseeding with milk jugs out in the garden, but the winterseeding concept assumes, like, snow and freezing weather, and this spring has been bizarrely warm and rainy. I checked the soil in one of the jugs today, and it was damp. No standing water in the jugs, which is a mercy, but the soil is cold and damp. Does anybody know if I need to worry about this?
3. And then there's the critter under the house. So far, no sign of life. Of course, if I got a dog, I wouldn't have woodchucks (not to imply, please gawd, no, that the critter under the house is a woodchuck). But I don't like dogs. If only a vicious barn cat could take on woodchucks! But somehow, I don't think so. And if I ever wanted chickens...
