Y’all! This weather! I know my friends in the Northeast have it much worse than I do, but this southern girl living in the Midwest has had enough. I love a good snowstorm every now and then, but today I’m just over it. I have a critical case of cabin fever, for which the only cure is some emergency crafting. The problem with cabin fever is that it usually means I can’t easily get supplies. I live over 20 miles from the nearest craft store, and the local WalMart barely qualifies as a superstore, so the craft department there is a bit thin. I can’t get there today, anyway, because… ICE! The only solution under such dire circumstances is to improvise.
I’m afraid my garden isn’t growing as well as I would like. A colder than normal spring hasn’t helped, and I’m not so sure the soil is as it should be. I do have cucumbers and beans that look like they’ll be OK, but the lettuce isn’t thriving the way it usually is, and other seeds are very slow to sprout.
