Chilly and Chilli

The first germinating seeds of the year are always special, in particular when their toasty conditions in the propagator are in such stark contrast to the outside (poor garlic under that net tunnel):

Apparently spring is coming!

  1. Aww, look at the little green hopefuls. What a nasty shock they’ll get when it’s time to go outside.

    • Most of those will be living their entire lives indoors, although there is some parsley in there that really is in for a shock! By the way, I have some loofa seeds now and will be sowing them later in the week – fingers crossed for home-grown scrubbies. Thank you for the suggestion.

    Chilly, indeed, but as we would say in Maine, it’s wintah. We have about a foot of snow predicted for today. Great day for my homemade chicken soup.

  4. Our peppers are up! We have sown parsnips too, and a trial pot of salad leaves for the Peach House, including some peas. Will see what happens, but it will be nice to have some freshly grown leaves to add to those hardy ones outside.

  6. I have yet to set my mind to the garden or look seriously at the seed catalogs. I suppose I should start, as I often plant peas in late February…
