Planting Seeds

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

I know, I know, I say that all through the year. BUT it’s the first most wonderful time of the year!

(I don’t even know if I can commit to saying it’s the first time I’ve said it this year…)

ANYWAY…it’s seed time!

On March 29, B and I planted a whole tray of sweet peppers (just to be safe– we’re definitely not planting that many in the garden.) Half of the tray is designated to California Wonder, and half is for Long Pepper blend.

She was SUCH a good helper– with a little direction, she did it all by herself!

11 days later… LIFE!

Isn’t it beautiful?! The cute little sweet pepper. It sprouted overnight on day 10. When B woke up, I told her, “I have to show you something. Something exciting happened while we were sleeping!”

“Our plants are growing?!”

I’m hoping the seeds go bananas (… or “go peppers”) like they did in 2017. That year (before L was born,) the trays were kept in the nursery. The sunlight is wonderful.

Rather than L sharing his room with seed trays, last year I moved the them to the kitchen.

  1. The stop sign worked 94% of the time.
  2. Only ONE seed grew (location, location, location!)

Friday (April 5,) we started our tomatoes and tomorrow we’ll start some broccoli that she “needed” when we were browsing the seeds for fun a few months ago at our local Farm & Fleet.

Happy Spring!

[UPDATE: Here’s something crazy to note– last night (day 12) at 10:00 PM we had one seedling. Today we’ve had six more seedlings emerge! Needless to say, B & I are running back and forth checking on the trays. 🙂 Oh, growing things is so fun.]
