spring



we've started our garden already - we spent 'family day' together planting seeds, many of which we saved from last year's garden. we are using the plastic containers that salad mix comes in at the grocery store, an economical replacement for the little greenhouse kits sold in shops. for some reason London won't take these as part of the recycling program.



these are cosmos - always the first to sprout and shoot up, followed closely by the tomatoes and marigolds. cosmos have always been one of my favorites. i love the smell of the warm soil, and tending to these little plants. after many years of failure, I think we're figuring things out.

What a good idea for those pesky containers! They don't recycle them here either- Grrrrr...

you make me wish i had a yard here SO MUCH. starting seedlings indoors was always one of my favourite parts of february.
and using the salad containers is SO smart! since london is failing a bit on the third "R" it's great of you to do so well with the second "R"!

That's a really great idea. I think I'll do that with my son.
