March 1 - Today I finished the greenhouse.  It is 12' x 32'.  The design is not my own.  The skeleton consists of 3/4" pvc connected to a 2"x6" frame.  As soon as I fastened the plastic over the top, I could feel the temperature rising inside.  This is a good sign.  After completion, I discovered that my favorite weather channel was predicting 40 mph winds and 4"-6" of snow!  I guess that it will get a good test tonight.  I decided to go out after dark to put a post in the middle to prevent sag - just in case.

Its February 8, and I'm planting seeds.  For me, planting is an act of faith and hope - faith that a small roundish object will somehow turn into an edible plant, and hope that someone will eventually appreciate this edible product.  In my head, I understand that a seed plus water, warmth, and light will germinate and grow.  But the process inspires wonder in my heart all the same.  Hundreds of brocolli, cabbage, onion, kale, and cauliflower seeds drop into the potting mix.  Each seed represents life, hope, work, food.  Who will eat this food?  Will I ever meet them?  May it give them health and strength to their bodies - whoever you are.
