Saturday is nearly over. I went to my parents' this morning to cut down a few red oaks for firewood. We've only got a few more weeks of really cold weather, but I was out. It burns, but it's a slow fire. Hopefully, the dry air of the basement will help cure the wood before I use it. More chopping will need to be done tomorrow.
Tonight, I took some time to presprout some seeds. I put passionvine, hibiscus, and some unnamed salvia into coffee filters and ziplock baggies. Once they've germinated, I will move them to soil and place them on the rack downstairs. I also took a cutting from the orange brugmansia that will go out in a trade on Monday.
In the hoophouse, everything got watered well. The gardenias are looking a little ragged with all the cold weather lately. The cold season veggies are germinating nicely. I saw some really nice purple seedlings that can only be my red cabbages.
On Sunday, I plan to spend some time in the yard. I don't have any plans yet, but I need to be outside messing around. I might divide my echinacea plant. Or maybe the coreopsis 'Full Moon'.
The high today was 60 with a low expected around freezing.
