I can start assembling Edaline.

My pathetic tomatoes

Well, at least they're alive. I used something different to sprout these. I bought one of those Jiffy Peat Pellet seed starter kits. It took over 3 weeks for the seeds to sprout, instead of the usual 7-10 days. Only half of them sprouted. The growth of the seedlings is remarkably slow. I won't be using them again. I will go back to using Miracle Grow potting soil and good old fashioned yogurt containers with a hole punched in the bottom. Of course, the way things are going around here, trying to grow Tomatoes may be a complete joke.

Sweet Hubby left with his overnight bag this morning. The University of Idaho asked him to be on some kind of advisory board with faculty in the computer science department. He's heading down to Moscow to attend various meetings. He'll be back tomorrow night. It's kind of an honor for them to do this. He's very pleased. He's been wanting to get involved in computer education in some way at the college level for quite some time. So many colleges are inadequate when it comes to preparing their Computer Science majors for the real world. Maybe he can help fix that.

Have a great day.

    Your snow is heading my way. Forcast is for snow fluries on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, highs in the forties and lows in the 30s.
