Nineteen days until Spring! We checked our seeds yesterday and they all had sprouts so hurray! that will save me a little money on the gardening project. Here are the marigolds:
Unfortunately, there was also a lot of mold growing in the little seed checking packets so I threw them all away. The only ones that didn't have any sprouts were the nasturtiums but I suspect they needed a little more time; their seed coat is a lot harder than most of the ones we were trying.
It is nice and sunny here today, and should be for a couple of days. I wish it weren't soggy and muddy out, I am just in the mood to go out and do some garden prep work. And we have a lot this year. Yesterday, the boys and I went to a couple of our local garden center / nurseries to see what's going on. There was not a lot to look at but it was nice to see they are getting things started in their greenhouses. We saw this interesting plant, or perhaps I should say tree; I have no idea what it is but don't you think Dr. Seuss would have liked it?
