Right in My Own Backyard - My Figurative Backyard

Seed Starter Kit
We still haven't really had any planting weather yet. It snowed yesterday, and there's a definite wintry feel to the air. In fact, there is a frost warning in effect for tonight. The temperature is expected to dip down to -2 tonight. So, I bought something to at least get some seeds started. The tomatoes and peppers seem to take quite a while to get going, so I bought this economy seed starter at Canadian Tire for 3 bucks, and I'll get them going in the house.

A little bit off topic but still in my own backyard.  My backyard in relation to where I am in the world that is; not my literal backyard.  A fire broke out in the CIL shed right under the International Bridge.  As far as I know, no one was hurt; thankfully.   I was actually just leaving my Mum's house across town when I saw the smoke.  It was so close and so thick, at first I thought the fire was just a couple of blocks from her.

Initially, I thought the fire would be put out before it burned to the ground because when I passed by the first time it looked like just the roof was on fire, and the fire trucks were already there.





When I came around a little while later, I was surprised to see how much of it had gone up already.  I guess this shed was used to store everything from old cars to road salt;  there's nothing left of it now.
