Something about starting seeds in the spring brings out the third grader in us. We love checking the egg flats every day to see how much the sprouts have grown and what new seeds are pushing up. This year we have started "organic" (not sure what that means in terms of seeds) lettuce, bell pepper, sacred basil, sweet basil, sweet peas, nasturtiums, cherry tomato, rosemary, and oregano. The lettuce won the race to be the first to emerge and now some of the sweet pea, sweet basil, and nasturtium seeds are coming up.
In other news, on our walk Sunday evening Hazel showed us how well her mama has trained her. Walking past Bucer's, she automatically turned to go inside and was disappointed to find it closed.
