I had this iced earlier. I finally went through nearly all my tea, there’s still a ton with no place. But I went to Lowes tonight and loaded up on organizing stuff (but mainly for my lip balm stuff) so maybe that’ll be better!

I’ve also started plans for my patio garden this year. I’m starting pretty much everything from seeds, except strawberries (unless I can find a container blueberry plant around here, all the ones online can’t be shipped to Georgia). So far I have arugula, mixed greens, spearmint, rosemary, basil, jalapenos, dwarf snapdragons, a variety of poppies called California twisted (they look so neat – http://www.burpee.com/images/product/prod000344/prod000344_lg.jpg), and dill. Then I am thinking baby carrots for containers!, beets, eggplant or tomatoes, cucumbers, and lavender.

I saw that to make the most of space, plant lettuces around the perimeter of a pot and then plant something else in the middle later! So is what I am going to try.

Anyway, I haven’t had this tea in awhile. I completely mixed up what I was doing but managed to save this tea. I really should try it hot one day, but I really think this is only the second time I’ve had this one.

It wasn’t as flavorful as last time but that’s because I completely forgot I only should have put 4 oz of water in the jar. Instead I filled it, so I doubled the tea but I probably should have made it 2.5×. Oh well. Still tasted like guava overall.

tell me about your organizing stuff from lowes! maybe it’s stuff I need too!

They had these shoebox-ish style plastic containers with rainbow stripes, so I got one of those which may or may not be for tea yet, I’d keep that in my pantry if it is for tea because it’s not light tight at all. There were some nice baskets/boxes too. I was looking for something I can stick mail/papers in on the counter around my kitchen because it always gets clogged up with stuff, and there were some maybe 12" long baskets that are maybe 4" wide, so one of those will be perfect on the edge, and it was a set of 3. So the other two I’m going to put on top of the drawer cart full of tea I have, and maybe put tins in there so there aren’t all these tins on the counters.

I obviously need to go to lowes!! Like today!
Also it feels WAY too early for me to start thinking about my garden! But I am excited for the growing season indeed.

I think next month is lettuce planting time! Also I really just didn’t want to stand around while my boyfriend was getting whatever he needed, so staring down vegetable seeds seemed good. Next thing I knew I had like 8 packets of seeds.

Wow, what an ambitious gardner you are! Wish I had more gardening skills myself…I always end up killing half of my creations :-(

Yay gardening! I love the planning just as much as the growing :) Right now I am overwintering shallots, but will be starting the lettuce soon! I usually start my seeds in March and plant out in May.

I just realized the rosemary and snapdragon seeds say to start them inside. I was trying to avoid that, because I didn’t think I really have space but I guess why not!
I’ve got an amaryllis about to bloom that started from a bulb so I think I won’t kill everything inside. Hopefully.
