I know it’s only February, but I couldn’t wait any longer. So now I’m tending tomato and cucumber and lettuce seedlings galore. Zinnias, and cosmos and black-eyed susan vines. I’ve transplanted itty bitty thyme plants and am waiting for True Greek Oregano and Moss Curled Parsley to sprout. I tend them like little babes in a nursery, hovering over them, cheering their every movement. Bathing them in warm gentle rains and lots of light, natural and artificial. And even though we have more snow falling, I just look over at their nodding green stems and whisper to myself and them that surely spring is just around the corner.
*I bought some seeds from the Ontario company linked below and would recommend them if you are looking for some non-GMO seeds. Shipping was only three dollars and it came reasonably fast and their sales manager emailed me a shipping notice and thanked me for my purchase. Very nice.
