Spring Sprouts.

Feb 09, 2011

Ah, blissful sun, how I've missed you. If I stay at my desk, with the sun blinding me and causing funky reflections on my iMac monitor, it feels almost like summer. In fact, my favorite chunky sweater from Gap men's department (circa 1995) is uncomfortably warm. Sadly, though, my little bit of pretend summer will end in a few minutes—it's time to head outside to water the plants in the greenhouse. It's windy. It's 37 degrees. Sorry, northern friends, I know I shouldn't complain.

Only 41 days until spring. Whew.

Thankfully, seeds save my sanity during frustrating February weather. If you want to experience a little bit of spring while it's still chilly outside, seed starting is the perfect cure for Seasonal Affective Disorder. For the tools you'll need, plus step-by-step directions to get your seedlings started, please visit

Happy growing!
