On a whim, I purchased some tomato seeds a few weeks ago, hoping to sprout a plant between now and summer. (Fat chance, I know, but let me dream.)
The directions said to start the seeds inside, and transplant after danger of frost, so I dropped a few seeds in some soil, put the container in my kitchen window and watered and waited.
I was delighted to see sprigs of green yesterday morning. How fitting that they burst forth over the Easter weekend, don't you think? My thumb isn't terribly green, but I hope to reap some tomatoes when summertime comes around. Got a long way to go, but I'll keep you posted.
