Every morning, the first thing that I do after stumbling out of bed is to check my seedlings. I love the anticipation of when the first seedling is going to sprout. Of course the seed packets tell us how many days to expect before germination, but I have a hard time believing them. What if I didn’t water enough, what if I watered too much? It’s been cloudy, what if they don’t have enough sun? Is my window too drafty?
Of course, life always seems to find a way, and eventually the seedlings do too. Today I woke up to the lovely sight of a couple seedlings struggling to peep out of the dirt.
