There are dozens of reasons to start a garden from seed and other contributors to this site have already enumerated many of them. But I would be lying if I didn't owe up to that fact that I get a little giddy every time I head downstairs to check my trays and have some new green pushing up through the soil. I have a lot of fun watching the seeds get going, at different rates, in different colors, especially ones I'm trying for the first time. Outside spring is still weeks (maybe months) away. However we've got a little jumpstart on spring fever started in our house and I can't help but be excited about it.
