Weather-wise that is.
Today, we had full-on sun for most of the day.
Amazing how much that improved my mood!
It made the project I had on my to-do list all that more important.
It was time to plant seeds indoors and get them ready to transplant into the garden later this Spring.
I usually buy some of my seeds online, and some of the major ones like peas, corn, and beans at my local greenhouse.
I decided to buy those I start inside at the store this year. I can't stand paying shipping for seeds.
So, this week, while I was grocery shopping...I got the seeds and seed starting soil that I needed.
In the past, I've marked each pot with tongue depressors and the item planted written in sharpie. They get a little gross from all the watering so this year, I just used my silver sharpie to mark the pots. Each year, I can turn the pot and mark on a different side. It won't come off with water, and I can see each one.
As much work as having a garden is, as I was planting these little seedlings, I just couldn't help but get excited that another gardening season is on it's way. I really do, for all the complaining my family says I do, love getting my hands into the soil.
The sun pouring in the windows really helped.
I even made some green sun tea, even though it was under 30 degrees outside and there was a little snow left on the ground. It made me long for summer so badly.
