Farming in a Polar Vortex

I know the vortices are over, but we are still dealing with their dense and snowy aftermath.

Plus it's nice to have an excuse to use the word vortices.
 As you can see, the greenhouse isn't quite ready to be put to use this "spring", and it won't be for a while yet.

We still have seeds to start, though, and today was the day we put the very first seeds of the 2014 CSA season in soil. In our living room :)

We started 170 tomato seeds, 80 eggplant, and 80 peppers. They're all destined for transplant in the hoophouse during the first week of May.

For now, they are cozy on the heat mat, with a lovely view of the snow.

Tomorrow's project: Starting basil and lettuce seeds.
