Hyacinth and Blooming Secrets

I took some photos of my father-in-law's hyacinth plants with buds in them. We are supposed to get snow tonight and I am praying that these will survive the cold.  I am bummed out  that  snow is still coming even it it's Spring already, sigh.
The rain  and  the snow will definitely affect little critters like this lady bug.  I don't like it when it's raining and it's cold because the ants wants to get inside your house.  They look for some dry place to stay while their house on the ground is flooded and  your home is their first escape and target.  
Anyway, my husband is  participating to  the Biggest Loser program at his work so he is  trying to  work out and eat a healthy diet.  He lost 16 pounds already  since  last month.  IN the quest of living h a healthier life, he wants us to widen up our vegetable garden at the back so we can grow more vegetable.
We went to the store yesterday and checked out their plants and  my oh my, as expected, the prices of the plants are ridiculously high.  So I went online and  look for some  ways I could   find a good deal for vegetable  seedlings.  I came across Blooming Secrets website.  I found some organic gardening solutions from their website.  The three photos below are taken from their site as a reference of what you can expect from their site.  

I am getting used to using different herbs in cooking so I am planning to grow my own herbs that I can use  when I cook.  Hopefully when the weather  is fully-free from Winter aftermath, I will be start digging and tilling my vegetable garden so I can grow my own vegetables.
For the meantime, I have to deal with a possible snow tonight so my plans are on hold.  I hope that  snow won't be so heavy  so the plants won't die.  I am just starting to enjoy the daffodil blooms at my garden and now snow is coming ugh.

I've always wanted to grow my own veggies, we have a space for it, but I just never got around to buying the seeds, I'll definitely check this site out. :P

Spring and it's still snowing? Definitely something wrong with Mother Nature, it's supposed to be summer here too, but the rainy season seem to be here already. :P
