I store my potting soil in myI store my potting soil in my garden shed which keeps everything dry but by no means keeps out the mice who like to pass through. I repotted some house plants last fall and was surprised a few weeks later by dozens of pea shoots coming up in the pots.

We enjoyed that trendy gourmet addition of pea shoots in our salads and stir frys. Thanks to our mouse friend.
