We Have Sprung Some Leeks

Finally. Some sign of life with the leeks. I won't post a picture, since I know you don't want to be looking at your computer with a magnifying glass, but trust me, they are up. Put down some pepper seeds today. Are you seeding down your veggies yet?

And We Have Germination

lettuce seedlings
The lettuce seeds I planted on Saturday burst through the soil today, eager to grow and give me green in a sea of white. Hurray! No sign of the leeks yet, but they aren't so quick. Next: herbs and peppers.

...And Sow It Begins

germinating seeds
The ground is still snow-covered and the snow is still ice-covered, but I need to see something green and growing. So I planted some leek and lettuce seeds in flats in my little germination chamber downstairs. I know it will probably be a bit early (unless the groundhog is wrong and we DO have an early spring) but I just needed to begin. I'm sure you know what I mean. There needs to be some sign of the possibility that we will have a spring this year. Sigh...
