    Is that a dog crate you're using? Never thought about that.

    I'm curious about how carrots would do in straw.

    ... they sure don't like the gravel where I try to grow them.

    SO.. how's the SBG going?
    I've had reasonably good germination on my spinach & lettuces... but the seem to have stalled for a bit. Waiting for that day when I walk out and say "OH MY! Those have really grown!" ;)
