We finally have some green around our house! We started hot pepper seeds mid-January and lettuce seeds late January. The peppers are coming along nicely and the lettuce seedlings are ready to go outside as soon as it gets a tad warmer. I have committed myself to wait until March 1st to put the lettuce in the container garden. As much as I want to put them outside now, I know that my luck we will have some hard freezes before they get hardy and my poor lettuce seedlings will kill over. So here's to patience! I can't help but want to hurry Spring along with a gentle hand and boot those seedlings outside to get growing...but patience I can muster up, and patience I will have! Here are some pics of our seedlings. Hooray for green!
Lettuce seedlings growing in egg shells! Knew those chickens were good for more than just eating the eggs!
