I See Green and Red

 While shopping at Menards yesterday I couldn’t resist buying
my heirloom tomato seeds.  I get mine started early by planting them indoors
about 8 weeks before they can go directly into the ground.
I was very excited when I came home and found my
Lemon Balm, Peppermint, and Oregano starting to show signs of green.
I hope that means Spring is near.
 Now I have about 3 weeks before I can start sprouting the tomato seeds.
 I sure hope I can hold off that long.

  9. Dawn, I keep saying that I’m going to start growing tomatoes from seed, but I haven’t done it yet. In South Carolina, we’d have to start our seeds in January. It was very warm here today, but we’re resisting the urge to plant our tomatoes. I did buy some flowers, though!
