bathroom re-model & seed sowing

We woke up to pouring rain. Tim had been excited about organizing his new shed with his work bench and some tools, but staying dry while going from house to shed (repeatedly) was going to be impossible. So, he decided to re-model our bathroom instead. What an industrious husband I have! He loves projects. The kids were so excited about helping with carpentry, plumbing, and painting. They got on their safety glasses and went to work. We probably won't get the whole thing done this weekend, but they got a good start! Tim also picked up little peat pots at the hardware store, and he let the kids start some seeds this afternoon. So far, we have started two varieties of heirloom roma tomatoes, yellow pear tomatoes (the small ones), hungarian hot wax peppers, and heirloom black krim tomatoes. We have lots and lots and lots of others to start, but it seems like our tomatoes are never tall enough to plant when it is planting time, so we decided to start them in February this year. I'm so excited that Spring is coming!!

What a fun weekend you all are having. I bet it was great fun for the kids to help Dad as well as plant little tiny seeds they'll be able to see sprouting soon. :)
