This week Miriam (with a tiny amount of help from me) started our collective seeds. We ordered a bundle from Baker Creek Heirloom seeds and they arrived last Friday in adorable little illustrated envelopes. They're incubating right now in little containers of soil as I type this. Among them, carrots, chard, beets, purple cayenne peppers, black heirloom tomatoes, cucumbers, peas, herbs and several types of lettuce.
Pretty terrible pictures though! Sorry!
As I tend to go on and on about the garden once things are growing, this is fair warning that you'll probably get lots and lots of updates as things begin to sprout. We're trying all manners of vegetable this year, so I'm pretty optimistic something will really flourish. We've already dug up half our backyard in preparation, and I'd say spring is well underway at our house for sure.
