the seeds are planted

We got back from our long weekend at Sea Ranch yesterday and arrived to full on spring in our yard. Now that the fence is finished and the vacation has been taken it’s time to get into gardening mode. So the seeds were planted in the first hour we were home. It’s still frosty in these early mornings as is evident by the valley wide hum of the vineyard fans in the early morning hours.

After Scott planted all the seeds and put them up on a folding table to keep them safe from wondering toddlers and curious cats, I looked at them amazed that those small cups of dirt will provide so much food for us in just a few months. I suppose that’s why people become so fascinated with gardening – to turn a few seeds and dirt into gorgeous flowers and nurishing food seems like magic. Well, magic, hardwork and a little cooperation on Mother Nature’s part, that is.

What we planted:

  • Lemon Cucumbers
  • Japanese Cucumbers
  • Green Zebra Tomatoes
  • Brandywine Tomatoes
  • San Marzano Tomatoes
  • Chiogga Beets
  • Golden Beets
  • Tendercrisp Celery
  • Super Red Pimentos
  • Colossal Kim Hot Peppers
  • Russian Red Kale

  • Portofino Zucchini
