Seed starting equipment has been rolling in, and I'm now equipped with enough trays to grow up to 1000 transplants this spring.
After finally settling on a recipe, I was able to mix up my own seed starting mix (shredded sphagnum, vermicompost - from my worm bin, vermiculite, perilite, with a bit of lime and manure), and yesterday I planted my first seeds; two varieties of cabbage.
Tonight I made a trip out to pick up maple sugaring supplies, and this weekend I'll be tapping the sugarbush. This will be the second earliest I've tapped, but I'm still quite late getting into the game with the warm February we've had.
How humbling it is to know that only together are we fully equipped to deal with the challenges facing us. How encouraging it is to be around people who are using what God's equipped them with. How inspiring it is being around people who step into the roles they've been equipped for. May we all respond and use what we've been equipped with to be a blessing!
