Babies for the Garden

Nothing fuels my anticipation for spring like starting seeds.  There is something wonderful and amazing about watching a tiny seed sprout into a seedling.  Dreams of giant tomato plants covered with juicy, ripe tomatoes are fueled by these tiny green babies.

So far I've planted tomato, pepper, eggplant, and cabbage seeds inside.  Next on the seed planting list is broccoli.  The cabbage is suppose to go out into the garden soon, but it was so cold and miserable this week that I haven't started hardening them off.  The weather is suppose to dramatically improve this weekend, so I will introduce the cabbage to the great outdoors then.  Friday we are predicted to have ice and rain with a high of 44 F followed by a high of 71 F on Saturday!  Crazy weather!  Although I will definitely not complain about a nice, warm weekend.

  1. I wouldn't mind having 70 weather once in awhile about now! LOL I am afraid it will be a bit yet before I can even start any seeds in the house! This has been a hard winter weather wise. Glad you can get going on yours! Nancy
