I am really excited for this year’s garden. Nevermind that it is only mid-February. I’ve been getting into gardening mode for a month now. Every December I get my Seed Saver’s catalog and in January, when all that holiday bustling is past, I pore over my catalog, ogling the beautiful squash, strange tomatoes and beans with intriguing names. Yes, I think squash are beautiful.
Anyway, this year I am more excited than normal because I bought a grow light. This past Monday I started my first set of seeds–hot and sweet peppers, tomatoes, ground cherries, Brussels sprouts, basil and onions (which take a surprisingly long time to grow).
After only 3 days my first seedlings started to peek through.
The humble, yet beautiful… Brussels sprout.
Yes, I think Brussels sprouts are beautiful, too.
