What would you do with an extra hour in your day?
My answer would be different for different days but apparently today it is gaze at the garden because that’s what I did when I woke up an hour early this morning.
I didn’t end up getting my hands dirty because once I stepped outside I realized that the ground was still pretty cold. I did, however, do a little weeding and planned out where my first seeds of the season will go.
I bought seven packets Southern Exposure Seed Exchange seeds yesterday and am itching to get them in the earth, especially the beets and peas because we’ve managed to grow greens all winter.
Southern Exposure Seed Exchange is a local company that specializes in heirloom, non-GMO seeds. They focus on varieties that do well in the Mid-Atlantic region but, according to the website, they have customers across the country. I buy their seeds at the local health food store for $1.99 a packet (unfortunately they cost more to mail order).
Hopefully those seeds will go in over the weekend…
Remember those beautiful Chioggia beets and watermelon radishes from last year?
The other project for my extra hour was working on my syllabus.
I am going to be teaching Modern Dance at Piedmont Virginia Community College for the second half of the Spring semester. The class will be a mix of technique, improvisation, and choreography and just like all college courses, will include reading and writing assignments, homework, a final project/exam.
I guess my extra hour this morning will make up for the lost hour on Sunday-it’s that time again here in the U.S., don’t forget to spring forward! Sunday night will be a beautiful thing…love the later daylight.
What would you do with an extra hour today?
If I find another extra hour I’ll run and do a little yoga…#iwillmovetoday
I have always dreamt of growing my own vegetables, let’s hope I get the chance after college 🙂
An extra hour would probably go towards cleaning, I’m such a Procrastinator
i was roaming in the garden yesterday and getting anxious to dig + plant for the summer. can’t wait! and i love your mug!
Thanks, my momma made it! She’s a potter and all of our mugs were made by her and this is one of my favorites.
We have asapargus now – it’s such a treat, I eat it several times a week as long as it lasts.
An extra hour would go to yoga!
We probably should have put in asparagus, we’re not sure how long we’ll live in this house so we didn’t start any. Enjoy!

Jealous that you were able to keep lettuce all winter! Although with how mild it has been for us in New England, I would not have been surprised if we could’ve too. We’ve got a bunch of our tomatoes, peppers and eggplants in the seed starter under the grow light. I love being able to grow our food!
I would literally gasp with joy each time I pulled back the frost cover and found the lettuce still alive! I’m envious that you have space for starts! Our house isn’t tiny but there’s just no good spot for starts. 🙁 Luckily it’s mild enough here that I don’t have to wait long before everything is ready to go right in the ground!
An extra hour? I woke up at 5 this morning, started work before 8, so I hope to really leave at 5 and get home in the daylight. Picking collards, chinese cabbage and arugla for supper will go on the list, and something else outdoors.
Congrats on the PVCC job coming through. New chapter.
