This is what my wood stove area looks like in the middle of winter. Surrounded by chicken water buckets thawing out and stacks of wood with a big pot of water for humidity. Cleaning definitely takes a back seat to function.
Eventually, winter staggers off and it's time to think of better things to come. Cue starting seeds. I have to protect my aerogardens from Loki who thinks anything in the house is fair game for her to play with, hence the fence.
I already gave some of the pansies and marigolds to my mom. I'm about to give up on the lemon tree seeds though. No activity at all.
