So now we have these growing in the South Window. I know, they will get leggy. However you always plant tomatoes right up to their leaves as they are one of the few plants that will grow roots from the stem if planted deeply and that is a good thing. So they are forgiving. And John just gets desperate to start growing and he was never one for rules and dates anyway. Those little first leaves have such promise in this mornings sunrise.
Yesterday I felt like something crunchy to nibble on so I cruised about and found these Sunflower and Cheese Crackers from Food in Jars. Oh excellent, I thought to myself Low carb, crispy and healthy. Went to the pantry and only a half cup of sunflower seeds. But I did have raw almonds and my ever present flax seeds. Do visit Food in Jars to get the recipe. In the food processor I pulsed flax seeds, almonds, a few caraway seeds and sunflower seeds to make up a cup, then a cup of grated cheese and then water to make a dough. Rolled out and cooked. So here they are in a Tea Cup.
A Girl with a Teacup introduced me to this fantastic dressing which I had made the other day. It is made with chickpeas and oil and garlic and vinegar and other stuff and is very very tasty. We have been eating it with everything. So I took my crackers and dipped them in! YUM! It was a lovely taste of summer. Here is the Summer Dressing in a Jar.
Teacups and Jars. Get it!
Now it is time to look on your calender and see what your last frost date was. Count back six weeks. Some seeds will need to be sown soon. And some other seeds need to be chilled. We will talk about those tomorrow.
It is great morning, 14F here and the sun is rising into a clear sky. No wind. A perfect winter day. All the animals will be out in the cool sun today! Me too.
PS. Here are the Answers to your questions from yesterday:
Sam added a tip to the discussion about improving your photos. Using the principle of thirds applied to light: e.g. One third light or two third dark. Or the barn would be two thirds dark and the sky one third light. And vice versa.
