Getting Started

The first trays of seeds have been begun inside.  Even though Lily and I already sowed lots of seeds in the high tunnel on New Year’s Eve, this marks a new season for me.

I started a handful of onion varieties as well as some shallots, cauliflower, sugar peas, and broccoli.  Three days later and I can see peas, broccoli, and cauliflower seedlings.  I am starting things earlier than ever this year since I will be able to plant crops 4-5 weeks earlier into the high tunnel beds.  I will also be starting plants for my gardening students at my daughter’s school.

This morning, I walked past the seed starting bench and smelled the wonderful scent of damp earth.  I consider myself very lucky to have found the thing that fulfills and renews me.
