And a wonderful way to bring you my blog about seed starting. Now, I almost didn't do seeds this year. When it's time to plant after the last frost (May 2nd this year), I can always find plants at the local plant stands and farmers market that are stronger, bigger, and healthier, than mine. And they are usually only $2-$3. So why bother spending time and electricity on starting my own? Well, it's simple. I need it. I need to see the little seedlings coming up with the promises of spring and gardening. I generally try to stay away from the plants that are readily available and stick to rare or heirloom veggies, herbs, and flowers. There is a whole chart system of when to start each seed, based on last frost date and how long it takes them to grow. I really don't have the patience for that. While I did start them a week apart, I was too excited to get them into their little pots. So the pictures you see have tiny seedlings from the seeds I started last weekend. YAY!
Who else loves to start seeds, or gardens?
Peace. Love. Serene.
