    Your cottage life sounds idyllic to say the least! What a wonderful way to relax. People don't get why we want to be so far away from cities too, and I guess it's hard to explain. I really do not like big cities at all and am out of my element there.
    SO sorry to hear that your health has been compromised. I am hoping that you are on the good side of that now? Every day is something to be thankful for.
    No need to send any money until we place the order and receive the seeds. I have your list of must-haves icon_biggrin.gif and I will add mine to the order we place for the office gift. That is going to be around $100 so our little seed-needs will be the negligible items. Oh, and I will need your address too, to send the seeds when they arrive. Should be before the holidays. I will let you know when I have them. They don't always arrive all at once as they are shipped from different sources. Will wait until we have them all.
    Oh no ~ another foot+ of snow? We never get that much around here, but what we do get is always cause for alarm icon_rolleyes.gif

    Hi KeeWee- a late response but today I slept almost all day, thus I am up this late in the evening. Not such a great day health wise. I will zmail my info. It has not stopped snowing since this am and we had THUNDER and lightening snow. Last time that happened was the October blizzard several years ago but knocked all power and closed down the city and surrounding areas for 5 days. It does not seem like that now but the alerts keep going on the TV. We are now expected to get 18 in. before 4 am Thursday. Not so bad but the icy roads will make travel difficult for the am.

    I think tomorrow I will make bread and Mere's no flour peanut butter cookies just because that will make the day feel warm and cozy. Of course not sure what I am going to make to go with that yet LOL

    Well off I go to zmail. Have a great day/evening.

    Seeds ordered!! We may not be able to get free shipping on all the items because not all of them were marked "prime" by Amazon. Regardless of that, we will still be splitting the shipping charges among three of us so the amount for our little seeds shouldn't be much. I will let you know when I get everything and send it out to you.
    I ordered all four items you listed exactly as noted, so hope I got it all right!

    Thank you Kee Wee just let me know. It is hard to imagine flowers and gardening with over 3 feet of snow in my yard in less than 48 hrs and it is still snowing!

    Blizzard here, schools closed, highways closed, and many events closed. I have not gone anywhere except a short walk to neighbors up the road and back. We check on each other. Hubby helped bundle me up and watched me go up the hill and then watched me come back home. Now he is in bed and I am checking in, pup lab is laying over me, LOL and my SassyGirl lab is in bed with daddy.

    Fire going in woodburner and a nice cup of coffee is being roasted.

    Off to bed check in tomorrow as long as internet is up and running

    Oh yea we were on the national news and the Today Show for weather, in the Town of Wales they have over 3 feet. LOL I already knew that as soon as the snow came above my windowsills.

    OMG ~ I so understand, having lived in WI for most of my life. But there IS something nice about being warm-n-cozy against the elements. As long as you don't lose power. We went without power for 14 days during the 2009 ice storm and it was the pits.
    Will let you know when I get all the seeds. They may come from several different sources so may not ship all at once. You can count on me!

    Take care and stay warm. Hope you don't lose your power. If I don't hear for a day or two, I will know why icon_eek.gif You guys out in the east always seem to get the worst of it!

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Garden friends. We did have a white Christmas but many are still without power due to the heavy rains, ice, and snow. Lots of downed trees, flooding of streets, homes, and now 0 temps to cause more damage. My hubby is stuck out at our new home and cannot get home tonight. Blizzard conditions there but here just steady snow. Maybe just another 5 in here but by him over 2 in per hour so far. No unnecessary driving at the lake house.
    The kids are going out there tomorrow after it clears some then I will follow out Sat. Supposed to clear and warm up by then. Tomorrow is major clean the house day for me. Me and 4 dogs having a clean fest. LOL

    Now onto Spring thinking------- already planning on doing some raised beds from reclaimed wood, bought some garden cloth to reduce weeds coming up through as my raised beds will be the height of the reclaimed lumber I can get. I also got directions to make very inexpensive hoops to make the hoop house on 2 of them so I can start even earlier one the "winter" seeds are ready. I think all these things as the snow continues to fall. aaaaahhhhhheeeemmmmm

    Well off to dream a little as tomorrow is a major work day for me and a smidge of garden magazine reading.

    Thanks so much for checking on me Connie. We are fine so far. Tomorrow (Sun) may be another story. Our problem here (in far western KY) is that we are NOT prepared or equipped for extreme winter weather. We are expecting up to 8" of snow, high winds and temps in the single digits. While this is not news to you, we only have one plow for 30,000 people in our county and it's a piece of junk. Plus, the workers aren't very good running it, so it tends to be fairly useless. If we get snow and then cold, there is no such thing as clean up ~ getting around is over until it melts. Our schools will probably be closed all week. Sounds dumb, I know ~ but that's the reality. Mark and I have plenty of supplies so as long as we have power (we have two generators for emergencies) we should be fine.
    Hope you are getting a break from winter ~ I saw on the news that the east coast was getting blasted again, but not sure it was you?

    Glad you are ok. Today is not too too bad but frigid due to the winds. The temps have risen Thank God but the winds make it feel so cold. We are supposed to get blasted again tonight and early through the week. Even with all the practice we get here with snow and ice removal there just was not enough time between storms, floods, rains, ice, frigid temps, and winds to get everything cleaned up after the last storm. People just got power and now with frigid temps basements that were flooded are now ice rinks. It is what it is so we move on. I am lucky that our power did not go out as our sump pump has been running pretty steady. Our other house however has an ice rink. DH is there getting it defrosted and pumped out.
    Tomorrow I am going with him to do some clean up and trash removal. It will be a good day together. Supposed to be niv=cer tomorrow and less winds during the day.

    C'est la vie.

    Have a safe and good day.
    Hugs

    ps- post is so delayed and still watching for seeds. Hopefully this week

    WOO HOO my seeds came today. I am so excited I was jumping around the kitchen in my crazy jumpy way. I cannot wait to get started. Up to 7 milk jugs already. icon_biggrin.gif However there will be no planting yet. We are expecting 40 below temps for the next few days and sever high winds. I do not not all that work to fly away. I will get the jugs planted with the seeds early next week.
    Kee Wee thank you so much for sending the package off. I will get a check to you this week. Oh I am doing a happy feet dance. icon_eek.gif icon_eek.gif

    I hope to get to the post office before the blizzard hits tomorrow morning after the doctors.

    Hugs and keep safe

    Wow ~ you ARE ambitious! I love Baker Creek and order from them every year which much success. I already got my zebrina seeds and would be happy to share a few with you if you like. At work right now so don't know how many I have but that is beside the point. Let me know.

    I would LOVE some Zebrina seeds. Let me know if there are any on my list I can share with you. Unfortunately I have misplaced my cabbage seed and may have to order some more. icon_redface.gif I need to get some railroad ties and make beds as soon as our 15 inches of snow melts.

    I'm thinking about ordering bean towers from Gurneys. Has anyone ever used them before? They look good and have great ratings.
