Blogsam and Jetsam

Flotsam is the part of the wreckage of a ship or its cargo found floating on the water. Jetsam is cargo or parts of a ship that are deliberately thrown overboard, as to lighten the ship in an emergency, and that subsequently either sinks or is washed ashore. This is my personal blog version of the above. Loot freely.

And this is the Italian Heirloom tomato seedling which currently represents the sum of "Gardening 2008."

Me too, though some seeds were planted on Sunday (after all the shovelling). The sweater is looking good. I'm assuming that storm passed through your neck of the woods, too.
