Wow, it has been warm.
On a whim, I planted a cold frame full of lettuce, beets, turnips, radishes, and carrots on the day after Christmas.
Who does that on nearly the shortest day of the year? An absolute optimist, that is who...

In any event nothing happened until today, and I went out, saw nothing and splashed water in where the 'rows' should have been. Then I noticed the amazing little plants.
Of course the water messed up my tidy little rows...(and I do mean tiny). Turns out the little seeds grow VERY slowly, but I will try to get a picture in here showing the little plants if they survive that long.
We need to do some bottling in the winery, and can't blame the weather...just have had a couple of colds.
Will update when the bottling begins....

New Year - New Resolution

Happy New Year!
Hoping to do a better job of keeping the blog up-to-date in 2012.
Here's hoping the fun just keeps coming.

Got the business books all closed early on the Winery this year, YEAH!

Something NEW to watch for....
Windswept is working hard on the Blackberry wine for 2012.
It will be released in the second quarter, hopefully.
