Spring Has Sprung and so have my seeds.

The sun is out today, and although it’s quite cold here today, I feel encouraged and hopeful for good things to come. Last year as this pandemic began, I planted loads of seeds indoors to keep me busy while waiting for spring. This year, it’s hard to believe, but we are once again starting lockdown. I have again started seeds.

This year, I have re-used my seed starting trays. They have been cleaned thoroughly with a bleach solution to prevent mold from appearing. The trays are cracked and worse for wear – so I have liberally applied clear packing tape! I’m not sure if the trays will survive to next spring, but they will do for now.

I am planting what was most successful last year! Tomatoes!! I had planned to order just the right heirloom seeds, but suddenly it was March 15th and time to plant. So I planted the tomato seeds that I received for Christmas and a few that I grabbed at the grocery store. I don’t know about everywhere else in the world, but our large local garden stores are CRAZY lined up. I will not be visiting there anytime soon.

My tomato seeds have sprouted, and the book about growing tomatoes that I received for my birthday relieved my guilt about planting seeds too densely – it will all work out. If I had more seeds, I would plant even more!

In the meantime, I am enjoying watching my tomatoes sprout and reach for the sun, while my little citrus trees bloom repeatedly.
