a growing challenge


Daffodils are peeking through the snowflake curtains. I think it's time for snow in any way, shape, or form  to leave now, don't you? Good-bye curtains, I'll miss you.
Come back next year.

The broccoli 4-pack in the house sprouted in less than three days. Out in the cold-frame, it's not looking so good. Yet!


I've entered this 4-Season Growing Challenge that I heard about from the bee. The goal: Each season, grow at least one fruit or vegetable that you've never grown before from seed -- and then tell people about it! There are also other options to further stretch your gardening skills. It will be a lot of fun -- check it out -- you don't need to have a blog.  I must spend some time with the seed catalogs now to choose my first crop, so see you tomorrow.

Hi Sandra AZMtnWoman -- Thanks for coming by and leaving your kind words! I think the sprouts have grown a half inch since I posted -- ha! -- you know how fast they grow, those babies. Yes, Jude, is the founding mother of something pretty wonderful for which I am eternally grateful...

So glad you decided to do this! It's a fun project. I'm growing onions from seed for the first time as my first project...

Thanks to you, Deb!
Haven't decided on my crop yet, but I better get on it.
