Seeds in the Ground

It's planting time!!! I got the first seeds in the ground on Friday, March 6. Such a Zen-like morning--working with my hands in the dirt, planning which seeds would go where, hauling water... I can't tell you how much I enjoyed being outside and being productive.

We started with a long row of snap peas, a patch of radishes, and the rest in arugula and various Asian greens. See that packet in front--it says '35-45 days' to harvest. Yipee. Even better, we could begin to see sprouts as early as Wednesday.

Friday morning at 7:30, the weather was 39 degrees outside, and well over 50 inside. Nice and cozy place to plant.
