I shovelled a path to the greenhouse today, and when I opened the greenhouse door, a wonderful warmth greeted me. I could have happily curled up in there with a book if I didn’t have a myriad of other things I needed to get done. One of those other things was moving some of my little seedlings that are growing in the sunny window of our family room into bigger pots. I’ve got two different types of cuks, four types of tomato plants, some celery, broccoli, brussel sprouts, cauliflower, red cabbage, zucchini and corn all coming along quite nicely; in the case of the corn, almost too nicely. It’s already six inches tall and since I plan to plant it outside, I’m worried it’s going to get too big before all the snow is gone and the ground ready for planting.
It feels good to be ‘garden puttering’ once again. It’s been such a long winter that it feels like years since I’ve had my hands in dirt.
