I think that no matter how old or infirm I may become, I will always plant a large garden in the spring.  Who can resist the feelings of hope and joy that one gets from participating in nature's rebirth? 

A couple of weeks back I spotted this small pack of Tomato seedlings growing in an empty pot that is near one of our planter beds. I am not sure if these are seeds that were planted last year but never germinated and were dumped into an empty pot or they are seeds from the many ripe tomatoes that we could not harvest in time. 

These have weathered the elements and are doing fabulously well. And here I am babying seedlings in soil blocks on a heat mat with grow lights.

Maybe I should just plant my seeds outside directly.


  1. Nice, those seedlings look good. These have come out similar to seedlings grown through winter sowing technique. In the past I have seen wintersown seedlings are much stronger than the indoor ones under lights :)

  2. This was not a planned/ conscious effort, but maybe this might spare me some effort in starting seeds indoors under grow lights in the years to come.
