Of course I am absolutely certain that I caught all the mice in my house and that not one will ever dare to come in for ever here-on-after.

Having that heat mat (for four flats) on that bottom shelf is so handy! I now have room for four more flats, on one shelf. There are a couple of seeds that escaped my attention today (the lettuces!), so probably that shelf will be filled up tomorrow.

We went to our Garden Center’s Winter Fair and of course bought more seeds. This time DH was in on it too (Habanero), as well as Amie. It’s good to spread the guilt obsession pleasure! Amie chose two annual flowers and one packet of Three Sisters seeds – she was very taken by the name, so that’s what she got. She also got to pot up a Marigold seedling and pet a parrot.
