We braved the single digits this morning and ventured up to Stacyville for an auction. It was not the most productive trip, but I do feel that everything we do is a learning experience. I learned 3 things this morning:

1. Stacyville is longer away than I thought.

2. We are not quite ready to consider bidding on a greenhouse. The 3 greenhouses that were for sale were big, and looked complicated to put together. We would love to have a greenhouse, but I'm not sure that will happen this spring. We have a lot of other stuff to learn, and I think realistically, we won't have time to commit to it. We hope to have one in the very near future though.

3. I NEED a pair of carhart bibs and a jacket to match. And STAT.
