Our tomatoes and peppers are growing nicely indoors, but it’s snowing outside — 13 Comments

  1. Linna, if you click on the Seed Treasures site, click on books at the top, not the book covers on the right, you will find everything. (go down through all the books. the westerns are last. good luck this time!

    • Found it. Thank you for helping me understand the system. I’ll send in the order. Linna

  2. Hi Jackie, This is not a comment on your blog, but I thought others may have the same question.
    I have a set of your Jess Hazzard novels and want to order a second set—could I buy them from you directly instead of from Amazon? I was hoping that you would get more from the sale that way. Linna

    • Yes, you can order them right from me. And I’ll autograph them for you too. You can check out our website, (click on the seed box above!) and view the books & prices, etc. How thoughtful of you!!

      • OK! The seed treasures site takes me to Amazon and gives the prices of $12.95 apiece for 4 books.
        What charge do you charge for shipping and handling ? I will send a check for the total. Thank you, Linna

  3. Just got our seeds started today. But the last frost is between April 29 and May 12. So hopefully we’ll still have a nice garden. We’ve only done container gardening of tomatoes for past 8 years. This will be our first big garden since 2010. Health issues kept popping up and caused us to forgo the large garden. We started back to canning last summer with produce from the farmers market and are looking forward to putting up our own veggies this year. You give my husband and I so much inspiration. Have read Backwoods Home since the beginning and so glad it’s back to being published. Thanks for all the guidance and enjoyment from all your articles over the years.

  4. I only use a wringer washer that is almost 70 years old. We have had to fix it one time. I will NEVER use another modern machine.

    • Yes, a few weeks ago as I like to have them pretty big to go in our cold spring garden early.

  5. Enjoyed your note. Winter has given up yet! My peppers and tomatoes are going strong. We recently boiled down 28 gallons of maple sap and made 7 pints of syrup. The grandkids enjoyed that project. Calving has gone well with loss of the first born but the rest we’ve been lucky. I’ve cutting up deadfall trees for future heat. Busy time of the year!

    • I’m glad to hear things are going well for you. I wish we had maple trees here. We do have a few Silver Maples but no Sugar Maples. And those are pretty young. Will’s busy cutting up firewood too. Like they say here, “There’s two seasons in Minnesota, Winter and getting ready for Winter.”! So true.

  6. Way to go Jackie!! Here in AL we are ready for the temp to stay above 40, so we can getout & garden some. Cant imagine the snow & cold y’all have. Lol.
