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.
