And the plants in the basement are thriving and will be ready to plant outside as soon as the weather warms up. Everything is up now except the green cabbage and chives which did not sprout at all. I may or may not replant them. I haven't decided yet.

The rhubarb is up - I can't wait for the first taste of spring in a rhubarb crisp or pie!

I heated a little bit of olive oil in a sauce pan and added one large onion and 4 cloves of garlic and cooked until soft. I added 3 pint jars of tomato sauce and 1 pint of frozen veggie stock (could use water or chicken broth) and just a little pepper (I didn't add any salt since I add salt when canning). It tasted just a little bitter to me so I squeezed in a little honey. I used my hand blender to blend it all up and lunch was ready! It was so yummy!

The weather is supposed to be great this weekend - maybe in the 60s on Sunday! This will be a great weekend to get things done outside.

Meanwhile down in the basement, all of the plants are doing well, just waiting for the outside weather to cooperate. Almost everything is up. I replanted the green cabbages and several of the cauliflower. The Chives still show no sign of life. The peppers are even starting to come up - they are usually the last to germinate.
