Spring Seeds

What a naughty, awful blogger I've been!  It has been forever since I've posted any worthwhile content, and I apologize.  The problem is, the job I picked up at Starbucks is very low paying, and I really just don't have any time to do many of the things I posted as my goals for 2010.  I still haven't even found enough soil to fill up the garden beds, and I don't have the money to buy bags of it.

Well, there is light at the end of the tunnel.  It is possible I will be getting promoted in the coming weeks, which would carry a decent though not substantial raise.  That should free up some funds for me to be able to pursue my homesteading more vigorously.

I also got a nice seed tray and some bags of seeds from my good friend Myles.  I'll be starting beefsteak tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, orange bell peppers, and (not sure which variety) cucumbers today after getting out of work.  Hopefully these plants will give me more to post about, and light a fire under me to get some soil in the garden beds.

I look forward to working my way into being a more active blogger again.  I still want to meet my 150 post goal this year, so I'm going to have to work extra hard after such a long hiatus!


  1. hey kyle, good to see you blogging again. good luck getting that promotion...
    i'm still playing the lottery and planning to set aside a nice chunk of cash to fill out your land fund when i win :) so look forward to that. heh.

    take care,
