The ground is thawed, the soil is tilled and raked, the supplies are ready. Now, it’s just a matter of sowing the seeds.
This is the moment of absolute possibility.
Sure, it’s back in the single digits on this final January day but an arctic blast can’t snuff out my spark of garden fever! The other night, I took an awesome free class from Mother Earth Gardens (held at Riverview Wine Bar, nice touch!) and learned all about starting plants indoors from seed. Fever ignited.
Do you know what that means? The seed catalogs are in the mail and I am pulling out the graph paper. I could be actively gardening in just a few weeks. Onions seeds first, I think. With all that fervor to keep me warm, I went out wandering in the yard and examined all the garden-related stuff still strewn across our potting bench from fall…
Things are going to be sprouting before you know it!
“Though I do not believe that a plant will spring up where no seed has been, I have great faith in a seed. Convince me that you have a seed there, and I am prepared to expect wonders.” – Henry David Thoreau
