SUNSHELF IS OK

confession 1: i have way too many houseplants.

confession 2: i do not have a house. i’m still living with my parents and saving up a down payment for my own place. until then, i have extremely limited space for my greenery. limited as in all my potted plants are packed uncomfortably close together on a garbage-picked vintage deco table i swear i’ll refinish after i paint my room.

despite the cold draft from the cracks and crevices in the window at night, the plants all seem to be doing okay. and winter is almost over! actually, it’s officially over today omgaaaaaaaah 😀

GARDEN UPDATE & NEWSPAPER SEED POT DIY

i went out yesterday just after it started snowing for the millionth time, planning on getting peat pots, seed starter and catering trays so i could at least get my seeds going once i was snowed in. apparently home depot thinks it’s a little early in US zone 7 to start a vegetable garden (even though they’re already selling seeds), because they had no jiffy pots or seed starter. what the hell? i did get those catering trays though (stop and shop, you never let me down).

so this morning i was watching reruns of roseanne feeling antsy as all hell and decided to make my own seed pots from newspaper. why not? i’ve done it before and i’ll do it again. except all of our newspapers were buried at the end of the driveway under varying depths of snow from each storm like a freaking fossil record of current events. BUT WAIT. doesn’t SESE use non-glossy newspaper pages in their catalog? i love you, southern exposure.
