Ridiculous Weather

The weather here in Northern Illinois is ridiculous. March temperatures have been incredibly high. In fact tomorrow it is supposed to reach 74 degrees. The average for the state is around 41 degrees. I wonder if we will get hit later with colder temperatures and more snow? I have seen that happen before. 

Today I will be sowing more seeds. Once that is done, I am going to finish the second cold frame and work on doors for the high tunnel. My back is still sore, but there is too much to accomplish for me to sit around and wait for it to get better.  I might try to get into a chiropractor later today or tomorrow. I think all I have is a strained muscle or a pinched nerve. I would think the doctor could make an adjustment and I would feel better. But as for today, its off to work!


A Pain in the Back

Unfortunately, I am not doing so well today. Two weeks ago tonight, I slipped on the ice and wrenched my back. I thought it was getting better, but today I am in a lot of pain. Usually, when I get up and get moving it feels much better, but not today. As I writing this, I am sitting in the recliner with a heating pad on my back. The heat seems to be soothing my back and alleviating the pain. I hope it heals and soon; I have a lot of things to accomplish in the next few weeks.

The seeds I have sown in the last week or so are starting to emerge through the soil. They are looking great. Yesterday, I picked up some materials to expand the seed room so there is enough space for all of the seedlings. Later today, I have several varieties seeds to plant. I know I have mentioned it before, but seeing these seeds germinate is really exciting. This is really incredible to see. There is life in that little “dead” seed that is placed in the soil. One little seed that will end up yielding so much! How great is God’s creation!
